Application Process

Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are “insured,” meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. You can participate in this program if you meet certain eligibility requirements. We can help you find out if you qualify and help you through the complex application process.


Appeals Process

The four steps in the appeals process are:

  1. Request for reconsideration
  2. ALJ hearing
  3. Appeals Council
  4. Federal District Court

Over 70% of applications are denied at first, making an experienced attorney crucial to the appeals process. While we would advise you to consult us before you file an application, we at William N. Benjamin Jr., Attorney at Law are here to assist you through the complex appeals process.
