Social Security Disability and Your Appeal
If your Social Security Disability claim is denied you have 60 days to file an Appeal. Social Security will presume you received your denial letter 5 (Five) days from the date on the denial notice.
- An Appeal must be tiled with Social Security. This can be done in person, by e-mail, or certified mail (returned receipt). Some people think that requesting appeal forms is filing an appeal. This is not correct. Requesting appeal forms is not filing an appeal.
- If your initial claim is denied you will have 60 days to file a Request for Reconsideration. Some initial denials require you to file a Request for Hearing. Therefore the initial denial notice must be read carefully.
If you have questions regarding any Social Security Appeal you should contact a California Social Security Disability lawyer for Social Security Disability help
