SSD Federal Court Appeals

If your request for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits has been denied by the Social Security Appeals Council, you can file an appeal in federal district court within 60 days.

At the Law Office of Annette Rutkowski LLC, I handle Social Security Disability appeals in both the northern and southern districts of Indiana. I often handle advanced appeals for other attorneys who trust in my knowledge of disability law and federal court.

I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. For your convenience, I have offices in Indianapolis and Lafayette.

What To Expect In Federal District Court

It's important to contact an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer as soon as possible after your claim has been denied by the Social Security Appeals Council. As your attorney, I will file a civil lawsuit against the Social Security Administration in federal district court, where your case will be heard by a district court judge.

Federal court appeals are won by careful preparation and the application of the law based upon the specific facts of your case. I have successfully tried hundreds of disability cases in federal court using this approach.

After your appeal, the judge can deny your request or award disability benefits to you, along with past-due benefits. This is the final level of appeal for a Social Security Disability claim.
