Social Security Appeals
The appeals process can be a long one. It usually takes 12 to 14 months to get in front of a Social Security judge unless you have a terminal illness, you have been served with an eviction or foreclosure notice, or you make a serious suicide attempt.
If any of these situations occur, please let a paralegal at Marzzacco Niven & Associates know so that we can raise a voice for you and ask for an expedited hearing. The Social Security Administration will move up your hearing and listen to it more quickly. Sometimes, cases are pulled and approved without a hearing.
If we do not win at the Administrative Law Judge level, we can and do file appeals with the Appeals Council and the federal district court. These appeals do not involve you appearing, nor is any further testimony taken. The Appeals Council tends to uphold the Social Security Administrative Law Judges, although we receive some remands. At the federal district court level, we win about 90 percent of our cases, and we have been very pleased with the results. When we are handling the federal district court appeals, we can also have you reapply for benefits, and we take every path possible to get you the money that you need.
