Request A Hearing Daytona: 2 Simple Steps

Request A Hearing Daytona

Want to request a hearing Daytona for your case but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, we have you covered. Here are 2 simple steps to help you get started. 

Filing for Social Security benefits is often a challenging process, and then to have them denied is a frustrating reality that many individuals face. Fortunately, we’re here to make the process to request a hearing Daytona easier for you. 

You have the right to appeal a decision the Social Security Administration (SSA) makes on whether you are entitled to Social Security benefits or are eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments. If the SSA determines that you no longer meet the requirements for Social Security/SSI or finds that you are overpaid, you have the right to request a review of their decision.

Step 1: Reconsideration Determination 

The first step in the appeals process is the reconsideration of the SSA’s initial determination. At recon, typically the same person that handled the case at the initial level handles the case again during the appeal. Although it’s not required for you to have an attorney to request a reconsideration, we highly recommend that you work with a trusted attorney like Culbertson Law if you’re trying to win your case.  

Step 2: Request A Hearing Daytona Before An Administrative Law Judge

If you disagree with their decision, you can request a hearing Daytona before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). The ALJ will make an independent decision based on the evidence they have, including your testimony at the hearing. You can request a hearing online and download the forms required. This can be a very lengthy process and you have to keep in mind the time limits for your appeal. If you do not file an appeal in a timely manner, the ALJ may dismiss your appeal. This means that you may not be eligible for the next step in the appeals process and that you may also lose your right to any further review.
After that, if you disagree with the ALJ’s decision, you can request a review by the Appeals Council. This process is very time-sensitive, so let our team handle it for you and we’ll guide you through every step to help you get awarded the benefits you deserve.
