Avondale Social Security Disability Appeal Hearings
If your application for disability benefits is denied in the initial phase of the application process, you will be given the chance to appeal this decision. The appeals process is made up of two stages—the Reconsideration and the Social Security Disability Appeal Hearing. Because many applications are denied at Reconsideration, you will likely have to appear before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) for an appeal hearing.
This appeal hearing will likely take place at the Phoenix Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. At this point it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney or advocate—if you haven’t already.
After scheduling your appeal hearing, you may notice that your hearing date isn’t for another several months. Individuals who experience serious financial or medical complications can contact their local congressperson to ask that he or she consult with the hearing office to expedite the applicant’s hearing. Although this does not always work, it will in no way affect your claim negatively.
