The SSDI Process

Do you have questions about the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) process? I am Trevor A. Brown, an SSDI attorney in Dalton, Georgia. I am here to answer all of your questions and help you pursue the SSDI benefits you need.

The Initial Application

The SSDI process begins with the initial application. Claimants file with local Social Security Administration (SSA) field offices, submitting information about their disability, medical treatment and other relevant factors.

Many people choose to fill out and file the initial application without the aid of an attorney. It may be beneficial to have an attorney review your initial application. At my law office, I handle all aspects of SSDI law, including initial applications and appeals.

The Appeals Process

Very few claims are accepted at the initial application stage. If your claim has been denied at this stage, an experienced SSDI lawyer can help you mount an appeal. Visit the Denied Claims/Appeals page for more information about the specific appellate levels.

You definitely want your own attorney for the SSDI appeals process. This is your best opportunity to be approved for benefits, so you want to put your best foot forward.

How Long Does The SSDI Process Take?

Generally speaking, the SSDI process can take anywhere from approximately one month to more than two years. A number of factors affect the length of the process, including the nature of your disability and the time frame of your medical treatment. How long the process takes for you depends upon your unique circumstances.

Handling all of the paperwork in a quick, efficient manner can speed up the process. I work to make sure my clients have the best possible chance of obtaining benefits, and that they obtain them as quickly as possible.
