Disability Reconsideration Review

Make the most of your claim. We've helped 225 clients find attorneys today.

If your initial disability claim was denied by the Social Security Administration, you can appeal. The first level of appeal, really a formality, is a "reconsideration" by a claims examiner at Disability Determination Services (DDS). Most reconsiderations are denied, but in most states it's a necessary step to get a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. The following states don't require a reconsideration; in these states the appeal hearing is the first level of appeal: Alabama, Alaska, California (Los Angeles North and Los Angeles West Branches only), Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, and Pennsylvania.
