Social Security Appeals Process

Don't Give Up. You Still Have A Chance To Obtain Benefits.

At Parker & Frey PLLC, we are well-aware that the vast majority of all Social Security Disability claims are denied. However, this doesn't mean you must give up. You have 60 days after the denial to file for a reconsideration. Don't be surprised if your reconsideration is turned down, too. This is also common, especially if you are under 50 years old.

The sooner you work with a lawyer the better. Simply call our Dunn or Fayetteville office at 910-591-2551 to set up a free consultation.

Disability Hearings

The best chance you have of getting approved is likely to be during the third stage, the hearing before an administrative law judge. This is where you really need the assistance of an attorney. Your lawyer must ensure that all your information fits within the Social Security Administration's strict guidelines. Even if you are over 50, you must have the right documentation to prove that you are truly unable to work.

During the hearing, they will try to show that there are several types of jobs that you could perform with your vocational restrictions. However, you may not be able to perform those duties for eight hours a day, five days in a row, and the judge may not realize this. We know how to best present the facts of your situation.

Preparing You To Face The Judge

We help prepare clients for hearings before the North Carolina administrative law judges. We want you to know exactly what to expect from the hearing, how to respond to the judge's questions and what your chances are.
