Elements Of An SSI/SSDI Appeal

When you find yourself facing the denial of your initial application for disability benefits, your next step is to find a lawyer who can handle your appeal. The Law Office of Maggie R. Schott, PLLC, handles two major areas of Social Security: Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits appeals.

Attorney Maggie R. Schott has years of experience in the legal side of welfare and disability benefits, including SSDI appeals. Representing clients in the Greater Spokane, Washington, area, we can help you sort through all the laws, regulations, and legal hoops you have to jump through in order to receive the SSDI and SSI benefits you're entitled to. Our firm takes SSDI and SSI appeals to the appeals counsel, but does not handle federal court appeals.

Filing Your Appeal: Why Speed And Experience Matters

Eligibility must be proven in order to receive SSI or SSDI benefits on appeal, so you should contact a knowledgeable Social Security lawyer who can answer all of your questions and help you determine if your case is eligible for appeal.

Because the time frame for processing Social Security disability claims appeals may be longer than you need it to be, it's imperative you talk to an attorney about an appeal as soon as possible. This way, we can take immediate action so you don't miss out on the income you might be entitled to. Having all of the necessary documents and information assembled beforehand, such as the names and contact information of any doctors, caseworkers or hospitals that took care of you, test results, and a summary of where you worked, can help speed up the process.

We will gather all of the documentation needed in order to file a comprehensive appeal and articulate why you are entitled to disability benefits. When needed, we can appear at any hearings or court proceedings on your behalf to ensure all arguments in your case are heard.
