Reconsideration Stage Is On Its Way Out
Did you know that certain southern California SSA offices are now “proto-type” offices? This means that they have phased out the infamous Reconsideration stage on most of their cases. This is great news because as we know, there is a devastating 89% denial rate at this stage across the country! What’s the point of making claimants file for reconsideration, then wait 3 months for a decision, only to most likely be denied again? It was rumored the Reconsideration stage was designed solely to deter and discourage applicants from appealing further. But, things are changing in SSA now. The good news is, Reconsideration is on its way out and this allows claimants to immediately request a hearing once their Initial application is denied. Hearing level award rates nationwide are 67%, and with an experienced attorney the chances of winning are much higher! Getting to the hearing level without the disappointments and loop holes of Reconsideration will be greatly beneficial to all claimants. Good work SSA, you’re moving things along quite nicely.
