What Do I Need To Know About SSDI Hearings?

SSDI Attorneys Serving Albany, Troy And Schenectady

Many people begin to worry after receiving a denial letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA). It is understandable that you would feel a high level of anxiety after a denial of your application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). You are unable to work, yet there is no support coming to help you manage financially and take care of your family. Do not despair: You have another chance.

Our Schenectady SSDI and SSI hearing attorneys have decades of experience focused exclusively on obtaining benefits for New York clients whose injuries and illnesses prevent them from being able to work. At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., we have represented clients in thousands of SSDI hearings.

About The Hearing

If you have filled out the initial application for benefits and received a denial letter, you have the option of requesting a hearing with an administrative judge from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

You have limited time after a denied disability claim to request a hearing with an administrative law judge. Contact one of our attorneys as soon as possible so you don't miss your opportunity to obtain the benefits you need.

A Social Security Disability hearing is your chance to present and argue your case before an Administrative Law Judge. The process resembles a courtroom proceeding. You will have the opportunity to present a written file to the judge, talk with the judge about your case and present the testimony of witnesses. You may also need to cross examine an administratively appointed Vocational Expert. That takes experience to do properly. The judge will decide whether to authorize or deny your request for benefits some time after the hearing is completed.
