Has your disability claim been denied with the Social Security Administration? Once your claim has been denied, you have 60 days to file an appeal with the social security disability administration. This can be done online or in a social security office locally.

The first appeal is called a request for a “reconsideration”. If your SSDI reconsideration appeal is denied you will need to appeal again and this time, asking for a hearing.

In this second social security appeal, the filing can take as long as one year, or even greater to get a hearing. During this stage, you will have the advantage to be represented by a lawyer who specializes in social security disability cases.
