The Social Security Disability Hearing

If your request for reconsideration of Social Security's denial of your disability is also denied, you can appeal further by requesting a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ). The ALJ will take a fresh look at your claim and any new medical evidence you've submitted, and make a decision after asking you and a vocational expert questions at the hearing.

You have a much better chance of winning disability benefits at the disability hearing than any other step. Unfortunately, it takes a long time to get a hearing date.
