Appealing a Denied Social Security Disability Application

Were You Denied Disability Benefits? You Could Appeal!

The Social Security Administration denies around 70% of claims the first time around. If you were recently denied, then you’re not alone. The Perecman Firm helps individuals who have been denied benefits file an appeal to get that decision reversed. Our New York City Social Security Disability lawyers are more than happy to prepare your appeal for you.

Contact us today at (212) 577-9325 for a free review of your disability appeals case!

Information You Need to Appeal

In order to appeal your Social Security Disability benefits denial, you will need to compile the following pieces of evidence and paperwork:

  • The most updated versions of your medical information – doctor records, paperwork from your hospital, etc.
  • A list of any and all medicines you are currently taking
  • Any change in your medical history or daily activities since your initial application
  • Any supporting documents that would apply. For a list, click here.

The Appeals Process

Appealing a Social Security disability denial is a four-level process:

  1. Reconsideration
  2. A hearing before a person called an ALJ or “administrative law judge”
  3. Appeals Council review
  4. Federal Court review

If you would like more information about the individual steps in the process, visit the Social Security Administration’s pamphlet.

While the Social Security Administration does not require you to have an attorney for your appeal, we strongly suggest that you do so. The levels of the appeals process can become extremely complex, and you don’t want to be denied a second time. An attorney will be familiar with the statutes and case laws relevant to your disability appeals case.
