The social security appeals process
The Social Security disability appeal consists of four stages. They are:
- Reconsideration stage - In this stage, you can make an appeal online requesting the SSA to review your application a second time. Only 15% of all applications submitted get approved at this stage.
- Hearing stage - In this stage, you need to present your claim and case in front of a judge. Either you or your attorney can plead your case with the support of evidence like a doctor, witness testimony, etc. The judge may question you based on your claim to verify your disability.
- The appeals council - If your claim gets denied at the hearing stage, you can take forth your case to a Social Security Appeals Council. The council will perform a thorough review of the judge’s decision and will decide on either approving or denying your claim.
- Federal district court - This becomes your last and final option. Should your case face rejection in the appeals council as well, your last option is to file a lawsuit in a Federal District Court. It is extremely hard to win a claim in a federal court.

Can you do other work while receiving disability payments?
The SSA always assesses your ability to perform other types of work before granting you disability benefits. The SSA allows you to receive income from other sources up to the extent of $1,220 per month. However, SSA does not allow you to perform different types of work.
If the SSA finds you involved in a work that your disability prohibits you from doing, it can stop your payments immediately. Call us today, and our team will explain how we can win your disability case. It is easier than you think.

If you can prove your disability to the SSA, you can qualify for disability benefits. You should prove to the SSA with accurate medical records that your disability is permanent. Furthermore, you must pass the SSA's assessments in checking if whether your disability hinders you from engaging in other types of work (substantial gainful activity).
Once the SSA finds your claim valid, it may grant you with disability benefits either under the SSDI or the SSI scheme based on your eligibility.
