Social Security Benefits and Requests for Reconsideration

Has your initial application for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits been denied? Early-on denials are common in the benefits application process. With experienced legal help, your chances for approval on appeal can be greatly increased.

If your initial application has been denied, the next step is to file a request for reconsideration. The request for reconsideration supports your pursuit of an administrative hearing, where you can seek to have your denial of benefits overturned.

When completing your request for reconsideration and attending your administrative hearing, it is possible to 1) mistakenly provide information that is highly damaging to your case, and 2)fail to provide information that is consistent with the Social Security Administration's strict criteria. At the New Lenox, Illinois, law firm of Marshall W. Conick, Attorney at Law, we can help you prepare a strong request for reconsideration that effectively supports your application for Social Security benefits.
