If you have applied for Social Security Disability, and your claim has been denied – don’t be scared this is not the end of the road. In fact most disability claims are initially denied, and if you disagree with the decision, you have the right to an appeal. The appeal process gives you the opportunity to bring any new facts to the table, and puts your claim in front of a different case agent to review your claim.
Time is of the essence in the appeal process, as you only have 60 days from the receipt of your rejection letter in order to appeal in writing. The “Request for Reconsideration” form or, SSA-561-U2 is available on the http://www.socialsecurity.gov website. If you do not file your appeal within 60 days, you have to start the process all over again with a new application.
