Types of Social Security Benefits

In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, most individuals require 40 quarters, which equates to 10 years of work to qualify. If you qualify, you may be entitled to monetary benefits for yourself and your family. Monthly benefits of up to half of your disability amount can be paid to your spouse or unmarried children. In some situations, ex-spouses may qualify for benefits if they meet the set requirements.

Your family may be entitled to survivors' benefits if your disability leads to death. When you are prepared to apply for benefits, our Phoenix Social Security Disability lawyers can walk you through the process.

The Social Security Appeals Process in Phoenix, AZ

The first step to start your appeal is to submit what is known as a request for reconsideration. We can fill out the paperwork for you so you do not have to worry about it. In reconsideration, a new case examiner will examine your file and determine if you are eligible for benefits.

If your request is denied or if the new case examiner denies you benefits, we can then request a hearing in front of an administrative law judge, then go to the Social Security office to make copies of the agency's file in order to prepare for your hearing.

  • At this point, it generally takes 12-16 months from the day you request a hearing to secure a hearing date
  • When the hearing takes place, you are proving your case to a judge; there is no defense attorney
  • A judge is going to question you about your case — a good Social Security Disability lawyer can help you prepare for those questions
