Those who go through the process of applying for Social Security or SSI disability often get denied on their first try. Taking the time to appeal, however, greatly increases one’s chances of receiving these benefits. If your disability claim has been denied, it is important to become acquainted with how the appeals process works.
The most important factor one should be aware of is the appeal deadline. Whether or not it is following the initial application, the administrative law judge (ALJ) hearing, or the Appeals Council review, individuals are allotted 65 days to appeal the denial to the next appropriate level. Unless you live in Michigan, or a handful of other states, there is also a Reconsideration stage.
