Step-By-Step Guidance Through The SSD Process

Some of the steps in the SSD process that we help clients with include:

  1. Filing your application: We help you accurately describe your condition in a way that will comply with the listings that the Social Security Administration has set for qualified disabilities.
  2. Being granted or denied benefits: If you are initially granted benefits, your case is over and you can move on with your life. If you are denied benefits, you can request a hearing and have the decision reconsidered.
  3. Administrative hearing: At this hearing in front of an administrative judge, you should have an experienced SSD advocate who can persuasively describe why you are entitled to disability benefits. We have decades of experience assisting clients at hearings such as this.
  4. Appeal: If your request for benefits is denied at the administrative hearing, you have the option of appealing this decision. We can help you determine whether or not this step will be beneficial to you.

Attorney Daniel Morrin’s commitment to SSD law is shown through his membership in the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR). This organization is mainly composed of attorneys who dedicate a large part of their practice to SSD, and who constantly remain on the cutting edge of SSD issues.
