What Happens at a Federal Court Disability Review?

If you filed for Social Security disability and your claim was denied by the SSA Appeals Council and the administrative law judge (ALJ), you can still file another appeal with a Federal District Court. Filing a Federal Court disability review is a civil action representing the last and final action of the SSA appeals process. The judge overseeing a New Mexico Federal Court disability review does not evaluate new evidence for disability case appeals. Instead, the judge re-examines the evidence seen by the ALJ judge to decide if errors were made.
