We Will Explain the Disability Process

RGV Disability understands the disability application and appeal process and will take the time to explain it. Both SSDI and SSI disability benefit claims begin with an Social Security disability application that is filed with the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Many deserving claimants are denied disability when they first apply even though they qualify for Social Security disability benefits. If you need to apply, appeal, or check your SSDI or SSI claim status, contact RGV Disability.

Application for Disability

The disability process begins  with an application. The application is completed online or on paper. 

Request for Reconsideration

The request for reconsideration is the first appeal in the disability process. This appeal is usually completed online.

Hearing before an ALJ

The hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ) is the most important appeal. Knowing what evidence to obtain and submit is critical.

Appeals Council Review

Requesting review of an administrative law judge (ALJ) decision is the final step in the disability appeals process. If this appeal is denied, the claimant needs to file suit against the SSA in federal court.
