What do I do if Social Security denies my claim for Social Security disability benefits?
If you were denied by the Social Security Administration on your disability claim, then you should absolutely appeal that decision if you believe that you are disabled and unable to work. Most of the appeal periods are 60 days after the denial, so if you have just applied at the initial level, it’s 60 days for you to do the request for reconsideration. If you’ve done the request for reconsideration, it’s 60 days for you to do the request for hearing.
If you do not appeal that decision, you may be barred from going back to that date of application to get benefits and you may have to reapply all together, so it is important. And if you have any questions on how to do the appeal or whether it’s a good idea for you to even appeal the decision, I highly recommend that you talk to an attorney, seek out somebody that’s experienced with Social Security disability law, and have a free consultation to determine whether you should go forward.
