You are already suffering from a disability and an impairment that denies you to have a better life, and making it worse is that when you file for a disability benefit, you have to endure a long and a very overwhelming process.
The initial step requires you to submit an application along with your medical evidence that supports your disability claim. This stage in the process can last up to three months or even more and sadly, only thirty percent of claims are approved by the social security department.
If the benefits are denied, you can appeal for your claims at the social security department within sixty days for reconsideration. The application is then sent back the social security department where it will undergo another review which takes half a year where only fifteen percent of these appeals are approved, unfortunately. You can appeal again for your claims for another sixty days which now involves a hearing with an administrative law judge who can review the claim. The judge can either approve your claim or deny it, or send it back for another review which can take two or more years to complete the process which makes you badly want to hire a disability lawyer.
