Casas Adobes Social Security Disability Appeal Hearings
Unfortunately, many initial applications for Social Security Disability benefits are denied. If this happens to you, we suggest that you retain the services of a qualified attorney or advocate before you enter the appeals process. During appeals, your lawyer will be able to strengthen your claim and fix any mistakes made during the initial application.
The appeals process in Arizona is made up of two stages—the request for Reconsideration and the Social Security Disability Appeal Hearing. Because a large amount of applications are denied at Reconsideration, you will likely be required to appear before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) for an appeal hearing.
Appeal hearings are typically held in an Office of Disability Adjudication and Review—or ODAR. Because there is no ODAR in Casas Adobes, claimants from this city will have to attend a hearing in one of the surrounding offices—likely the Tucson ODAR.
It is important to note that when hiring an attorney or advocate, you will not be required to pay them unless you are awarded benefits. Even then, the SSA has established a limit to the amount of money an attorney can charge.
If you are, in fact, required to attend an appeal hearing, you may notice that your hearing isn’t for another several months. If you find that financial or medical circumstances out of your control make it impossible for you to wait for your hearing, we recommend that you reach out to your local congressperson.
He or she can intervene with the Tucson ODAR on your behalf to expedite your hearing. Although this is not always effective, requesting congressional intervention will not harm or delay your claim in any way.
