Shelby County Lawyer Handling Social Security Disability Claims

Has your application for Social Security Disability benefits been denied? Do not give up. Many people are denied after the first application. Thankfully, there is an appeals process that you can go through with the help of an experienced lawyer.

Fast action is important, because you only have 60 days after receiving the denial letter to file an appeal. If you miss the deadline, you will have to start over again from the beginning. Get in touch with attorney Joseph R. Kemp quickly to avoid delays. He can help you appeal your claim for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

The SSD Appeals Process

Joseph R. Kemp has more than 20 years of experience helping people in Shelby County and the surrounding parts of Alabama appeal their denied Social Security claims. He understands the process and takes pride in maneuvering it skillfully to get people benefits quickly.

The first step is a request for reconsideration. Essentially, this step involves submitting further documentation and asking the Social Security Administration to take another look at it.

If your claim is not accepted at the reconsideration stage, the next step in the appeals process is a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. While this is not a trial, it does allow for the opportunity for your lawyer to verbally explain why you are eligible for benefits and prevent further documentation and testimony from experts as appropriate. Joseph R. Kemp has established an impressive record of success at this stage in the SSD appeals process.
