Know What to Expect in Indiana
SSD and SSI are federal programs, yet the disability appeals process often varies from state to state. The basic steps for an appeal in Indiana can be briefly described as follows:
- You must submit a Request for Reconsideration within 60 days of the denial of your claim. You are basically asking the SSA to review your claim again.
- There will be an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing. Your best chances for success will be during this review. Be prepared and ask your attorney to represent you.
- If no benefits are awarded at the ALJ hearing, the next step is the Appeals Council in Falls Church, Virginia.
- The final step in the appeals process is going to federal court. You need an experienced attorney at this stage in the process.
