The Social Security Disability Insurance process

The Social Security Disability Insurance program is not a needs-based program. Allocations for Social Security Disability are based on how much you have paid into the program through payroll taxes.

The Social Security Administration has four levels for reviewing and rewarding Social Security Disability payments. The process involves application, reconsideration, hearing, and appeals.

Additionally, there is a fifth level that takes the applicant out of the Social Security administration and into the federal court system. Since only 36% of initial applications are approved it is necessary for applicants to be familiar with the review process.

The Social Security Disability lawyers at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin can help if you were denied the benefits you deserve.
