The 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. If this phase also results in rejection, you may present your case at a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. If the judge rules against you, you may request that the SSA Appeals Court reviews your case.

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.

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.

No matter what stage of appeals you find yourself in, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney helping you through the process. At Rubin & Badame, Attorneys at Law, P.C., we are ready and able to serve as your advocate during this time.
