Appeal Process

Securing Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can be a complex but crucial journey.

We highly encourage people to appeal rather than reapply as they would get more back pay if their benefits are approved. Back pay is the money the government owes you that you have yet to receive based on your application date. Furthermore, reapplying only sets people back into the application process, which can take months.

Therefore, let us lead you on the SSDI and SSI appeals process together, empowering you with insights and clarity every step of the way.
