Most people who go through the process of applying for Social Security or SSI disability will be denied the first time. The chances of getting approved for benefits go up for those who take the time to appeal. More specifically, getting a case at a hearing in front of an administrative law judge (ALJ) is where a claimant will have their best opportunity at winning disability benefits.
If your disability claim has been denied, you should get to understand how the appeals process works, because you have little chances of winning disability benefits if you don't appeal the initial denial and know the steps to take to win the appeal. Learn about Social Security and SSI appeals here.
