The Four Levels Of SSDI Appeals Process

There are four levels of appeal available to those who have been denied Social Security disability benefits. The four successive levels of appeal include:

  • Reconsideration
  • Hearing
  • Appeals Council review
  • Federal court case

If your initial application for benefits is denied, your claim will be moved to a reconsideration phase. Your claim will be reviewed once more by the Social Security Administration. If this phase also results in rejection, you may present your case at a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, or ALJ. If the judge rules against you, you may request that the SSA Appeals Court reviews your case. The final state, if the counsel once again rejects your claim, is filing a lawsuit in federal court.

Time Limit for Appeals

You generally have 60 days after you have received the SSA’s decision to ask for an appeal. If you do not appeal on time, the Appeals Council may choose to dismiss your claim. This could result in the forfeiture of your right to any further review. If you are late in filing an appeal, the Appeals Council may choose to extend the time limit if you can provide a good reason as to why you were late.

How Long Does a Disability Appeal Take?

The time it takes to appeal a Social Security disability decision varies from case to case. The average time is around two years, however some cases are easier than others so they’re faster. Along with determining the medical evidence, some DDS claims examiners or judges have hundreds of claims they must get through before yours is gotten to. However, don’t be discouraged, our reliable SSD appeals lawyers in Pennsylvania are here to help!

Disagreement with the Appeals Court’s Decision

If the Appeals Court issues an unfavorable decision or denies your request for review, you have the right to file for a judicial review of the SSA Appeals Court in a federal district court. This is the last level of the appeals process.
