Your Comprehensive Partner in Social Security Disability Representation

Dedication to aiding those with disabilities in obtaining their rightful benefits under federal law is the cornerstone of the Social Security Law Center. Our reach extends throughout Oklahoma, making us a formidable ally in cases from filing to appeal. Regardless of where you find yourself in the process — whether at the outset, facing a denial, or somewhere in between — our attorneys are primed to deliver straightforward, efficient legal representation. Our services encompass a broad spectrum of Social Security cases:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): This primary federal program requires applicants to demonstrate a medically documented disability and an adequate work history. Our expertise in SSDI claims in Oklahoma is unmatched, and we’re here to start your process with a free consultation.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): Tailored for individuals with minimal financial resources, SSI’s eligibility criteria do not include work history. We proficiently handle both initial claims and appeals.
  • Survivor’s (Widow’s) Benefits: Losing a spouse brings emotional pain and financial strain. Survivor’s Benefits aims to alleviate this burden for the surviving spouse and dependent children, a process we navigate with compassion and expertise.
  • Medicare: An indispensable aspect of support for SSDI and SSI recipients, Medicare provides crucial health insurance coverage, becoming available after two years of receiving disability benefits.

Navigating the Maze of Denied Claims

The denial of SSDI or SSI benefits can be a significant setback, but it’s not the end of the road. Prompt, decisive action is vital to appeal the decision. Oklahoma’s Social Security appeals process involves several stages:

  1. Request for Reconsideration: This initial step allows for introducing new evidence. Applicants have 60 days to request reconsideration, an opportunity to strengthen their case.
  1. Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Hearing: If reconsideration doesn’t lead to a favorable outcome, the next step is a hearing before an ALJ, an independent reviewer. Legal representation during this phase is crucial.
  1. Appeals Council: This body can review or decline the ALJ’s decision. They can issue a ruling or return the case to the ALJ for further review.
  1. Federal Litigation: The final recourse for denied claims is to take the matter to federal court, a complex process that our firm is well-equipped to handle with extensive experience.
