Appeal Denied Benefits

Did you receive a “Notice of Disapproved claim” letter? You're not alone. About 80% of initial application are denied.

This letter will tell you why you were denied.  If you disagree, appeal! We are here to help appeal at any level, from the Request for Reconsideration, Hearing, or Review, up to Federal civil action.

You only have 60 days to file any appeal, so it's very important that you contact us as soon as possible. Your chances of winning an appeal double when you have a lawyer!

Representation at Appeal Hearing

If you have gotten this far, you want to make sure you're going to win at your hearing. The odds of finally getting approved for benefits is the highest at the hearing stage. This is probably because people are most likely to finally hire an attorney at this stage.

Call us as soon as you receive the Notice of Reconsideration letter. You'll know you've been denied again if it says the "previous determination was proper under the law.”  You only get 60 days from that letter to request a hearing. We have a lot of work to do to prepare for a hearing, so contact us right away.

Federal Civil Suits

Filing Federal Civil Suit

Federal court litigation is the absolute last possible review of your case. In addition to being one of the few who take cases to federal court, Balin Law is also one of the very few who step in to litigate claims in federal court where other attorneys have lost.
