Step-by-Step Process of Applying for Benefits

If you are considering applying for benefits from the SSA in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina the following information may be relevant.

Begin by completing your application. You may fill out applications for SSI or SSDI or even both. If you need help you can make an appointment with an expert who works in the office of even solicit the help of an experienced social security attorney. That way you can be sure that you have included all of the proper supporting documentation.

The Social Security Administration will then review your application to make sure it is complete and meets the minimal expectations for application. It will then be sent to the DDS where a medical examiner will review it. The ME may ask for further information or even request you be seen by a doctor of their choosing. Finally, your application will either be approved or denied by the Medical Examiner and sent back to the Social Security office who will contact you with the decision.

Best case scenario is you are approved and your benefits calculated with a start date for receipt. It can take up to six months before you receive a decision.

Appeals for Disability Benefits

If the medical examiner serving the SSA for Myrtle Beach, S.C. denies your request you have the option to appeal. This is more formally known as ‘stage 2’ or ‘reconsideration’. If you intend to appeal you must do so within 60 days of that first denial.

The process will mirror the first one except that a different medical examiner will be assigned to your case. Part of what he or she will be looking for is if something was missed during the initial review. They will also be looking for additional proof of your disability. Ultimately, this medical examiner will ALSO make a decision about your benefits and again notify the field office in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

If a second review finds you qualify then you will receive a letter stating this and the benefit calculation. If the ME doesn’t believe your disability qualifies you will be rejected again.

Even so – you can appeal a third time. This is the time when you will have a hearing set up with an Administrative Law Judge (ALR). Appeal within sixty days again and send this request directly to the ODAR. If you are confused or have questions contact the Social Security Administration in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
