SSD Federal Court Appeals

If the Social Security Appeals Council has denied your request for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, 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 (SSD) 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, Lafayette and Franklin.

What To Expect In Federal District Court

When my clients' SSD claims are denied by the Appeals Council, I file a civil lawsuit against the Social Security Administration. This lawsuit is filed in federal court and is heard by a district court judge.

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.

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.
