What is the Appeals Council?

If your initial claim and reconsideration claim for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are denied, the next step would be to hold an ALJ (administrative law judge) hearing. At this hearing, you will present any and all supporting evidence you may have and bring witnesses that testify for your case. If the ALJ does not approve your claim, you can appeal to the Social Security Appeals Council.

If selected, the Appeals Council will provide you with a final case review and they will look at the entirety of the case. However, they may deny a request for review if they feel that the ALJ made the correct decision earlier. If they do decide that your case should be reviewed, they may do it themselves or they may pass it onto another ALJ for further clarification. Regardless of their decision, they will inform you via writing.

Here are the steps of the appeal process:

  • File initial claim for Social Security Disability benefits
  • Go through reconsideration process if denied
  • Have administrative law judge hearing where you present evidence and witnesses
  • Hold Social Security Appeals Council appeal where they do a final review of your case
  • Potentially have your case approved and receive SSD benefits

Appealing to the Social Security Appeals Council will require an overwhelming amount of time and effort, should you choose to do it alone.

  • The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made.

    “The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made. Brett Busch was a top-notch Attorney and represented me during the three year legal process with Workers comp as well as a personal injury claim. During these three years he guided me through the process to maximize my claim. He kept me well informed and was prompt to return my calls or emails whenever I had a question or concern. Deidra Deery , Brett's Paralegal at the Firm , was more than helpful anytime I needed assistance. As a matter of fact everyone I spoke to at the Busch Law Firm was kind and caring any time I was in contact with. This Law Firm and Brett were always professional and most importantly effective in resolving my legal issues.”
