Do you need a Social Security Appeal?

Being denied social security is unfortunately common. More than 70% of all applicants are denied. After a denial, filing for a Social Security Appeal is the best plan of action.

Unfortunately, many applicants make one of two mistakes after receiving a notice of denial from the SSA. Some will give up hope of receiving the disability benefits they so desperately need. Others will just try to re-apply for Social Security Disability benefits all over again. Neither of these choices is wise.

Re-applying for disability benefits is not the best course of action. While the appeal process can be long, if you re-apply for benefits rather than pursuing an appeal, chances are that your application will just be denied again. The best option is to appeal the decision.

You only have 60 days from the date you receive your determination letter from the SSA to appeal the decision to deny your benefits.
