Once you've filed for your disability: What happens next?
All SSD claims are submitted to the State Disability Processing Agency (DDS) for medical interpretation. However, there is no set timetable on when a claim will be fully processed.
It can take anywhere from 45 to 60 days to find out the status of your claim.

Our goal is to make our clients' lives more comfortable through the long and daunting process. We will help you with everything from the early paperwork and filing, through approval, denial and subsequent actions. We won't rest until your case is resolved.

No matter how much research you do ahead of time on how to correctly file for Social Security Disability, it is still a very complicated and intricate process. We educate our clients by employing a four-step process that is the most common process of filing a claim.
1. The initial filing of the claim: The initial process can be handled by Angermeier and
Rogers, LLP, or your claim may be filed in person, at a Social Security Disability office,
2. Reconsideration: Many applicants get turned down upon their first filing submission.
A reconsideration employs someone to review your claim completely different than
the first person who rejected your claim. There is a 60-day window for the reconsidering
process, and this must be submitted in writing.
3. Hearing before an ALJ: If your reconsideration has been denied, then you will be able
to present your case in person. This case will be presented in front of an Administrative
Law Judge, also known as ALJ.
4. The Appeals Council: If the ALJ denies your case, you can further appeal your case to an
Appeals Council, which is a review board that is part of the Social Security
Administration. The Appeals Council can make its own decision, send the case back to
ALJ for a new hearing, or may uphold the ALJ's decision.
