Start the SSD Appeal Process Today
You only have 60 days after receiving your denial to file an appeal. It is drastically important to take action and seek legal counsel with a disability attorney as soon as you can before this strict time limit expires. With the help of a professional, you should evaluate your options for filing for an appeal, including:
- Reconsideration: You may request that your original claim be reconsidered without alteration. Typically, you will need to also include a statement declaring your right to appeal and an explanation of your medical condition that requires you to have disability benefits.
- Administrative hearing: You and your own disability lawyer can file for reconsideration directly to an administrative law judge – an attorney that works for the SSA and only handles appeal claims.
- Appeals Council: A group of representatives known as the Appeals Council may deliberate the validity of your appeals case and overturn the denial. The Appeals Council does not have to accept your case at all, however, and will usually choose which cases to review at random.
- Federal court: If all else fails or no other options seem viable, ask your disability attorney if they are willing to take the claim to federal court for an ultimate decision that goes over what the SSA has already decided. The procedure will be daunting but could be the best solution for your case.
