Indiana Social Security Lawyer Wins Benefits on First Appeal

Written by John Horn. Posted in Social Security Disability

No Fee Unless We Win

Indiana Social Security Lawyer H. Elizabeth Kelley of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., just won a Social Security Disability claim at the reconsideration level in only a few months.   We won benefits for our client back to January 1, 2014.  Horn & Kelley try to win every case as soon as possible.

Social Security granted our client’s request for reconsideration.  That means he won without a hearing.  His claim was made on the basis of diabetic neuropathy, impaired vision, and Raynaud’s syndrome.  Most applications are denied.  Then it is necessary to file an appeal called reconsideration.  Most claims are denied at reconsideration.  Then it is necessary to file another appeal requesting a hearing by an administrative law judge.  Many claims are won at the administrative law judge level, but if you do not win, an appeal must be filed with the Appeals Council.  The Appeals Council denies most appeals.  Social Security used to allow sixty-five percent of claims overall, but now it is allowing only forty percent of claims  Social Security is just a big insurance company, and like any other insurance company, it only wants to take in premiums and not pay benefits.  That means you need a Indiana Social Security Lawyer who will if necessary take your case to the United States District Court, the United States Court of Appeals, or even the United States Supreme Court.
