LET OUR 5-STAR TEAM FIGHT FOR YOU
What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?
SSI disability is for those who have been mentally or physically disabled for at least 12 months and expect to be disabled for at least another 12 months. The program is designed for aged, blind and disabled people with very little or no income. It provides funds to those who qualify so they can meet their basic needs for food, housing, and clothes. The medical standards for SSI are the same as those for Social Security Disability.
What Do I Do If I’m Denied Social Supplemental Security Insurance?
The Appeal Process is the same as the Social Security Appeal Process. Most SSI applications are denied at first. Fortunately, this is not the end of the story. There is an SSI Appeal process that allows you to continue your fight for benefits. You must file your initial request for an administrative law judge hearing within 60 days of receiving your denial letter. Usually, you will receive the denial letter within five days of the postmark. Although there may be sometimes that this will not happen and extensions of time to appeal are usually granted. You will generally lose your right to appeal if you do not meet the deadline. If you have missed the deadline, call us – we can file a late appeal for you if you have a good reason for missing it.
There are three levels of appeal in northern New York, and we’ve won SSI appeals at every level. So, even if you are denied at one level, you can continue the appeals process through administrative channels. If your claim is still denied, you may take your case to the federal court system.
