Social Security Process

The process of obtaining Social Security Disability benefits can be confusing and frustrating for those who have not experienced it.. Without the help of an experienced attorney, it can also be a fruitless task. At Boxer & Gerson, LLP, we have been helping people obtain Social Security Disability benefits for more than 30 years. In that time we have handled countless hearings at which our experience and knowledge about the Social Security Administration claims process directly benefits our clients. Our goal in every case is to help our clients obtain the Social Security Disability benefits that allow them to live in dignity and peace of mind.

The Social Security Process

Most initial Social Security Disability claims are rejected. If that has happened to you, do not give up hope. There are several points in the process that allow you to appeal a denied claim. The key is to get experienced legal representation to assist you.

Wherever you are in the process, contact Boxer & Gerson, LLP instead for a free, no-obligation consultation about your case.

We will explain and help guide you through the Social Security process as follows:

Initial Claim — The claimant files this claim with the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Request for Reconsideration — The claimant asks SSA to reconsider the initial rejection. Again, most requests for reconsideration are rejected. At this point, Boxer & Gerson, LLP can intervene and take action on your behalf.

Social Security Appeal — We can appeal your case to the SSA Appeals Council if appropriate and mutually agreed to.

Civil Court Appeal — If the Appeals Council rejects your appeal, Boxer & Gerson, LLP can take your case to federal district court if appropriate and mutually agreed to.
