Social Security Process

The Social Security Administration provides wage benefits and medical benefits to citizens who are unable to work because of a disabling condition. That's the good news. The bad news is that the process of obtaining benefits is not easy. In fact, the process is usually long, bureaucratic and frustrating. It can include an initial application, a request for reconsideration, a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ) and even an appeal in federal court.

Our firm can help you understand this process. We can help you navigate the system to get the benefits you are entitled to, as quickly as possible.
