What to do to Appeal a Denied Social Security Disability Claim - Step Two

Step 2

 

File a Notice of Appeal

You must file a notice of appeal to Social Security within sixty days of receipt of your disability denial letter. There is no time to procrastinate. Failure to file a notice of appeal for your SSI or SSDI denial may result in loss of your opportunity to appeal your claim and necessitate that you start all over again with an application. Procrastination could cost you many months of lost benefits. You may either go to the Social Security Administration's website for appealing denied benefits or you may fill out the form on this page to request assistance from an experienced Social Security disability lawyer.  (The attorney will not charge you for their help unless you win your benefits.)

If you choose to appeal the denial on your own, read the Administration's website extremely carefully and make sure you follow each item exactly as requested and provide the necessary information along with any new supporting evidence you may have. Remember to provide new evidence that will overcome the Administration's reason for denying your first claim. Hit the reason for denial "head-on."

After completing the information, re-file your paperwork and be prepared to wait again. Although the wait time may not be quite as long as the first application, it may still take several weeks to months to hear back on the new decision for benefits.
