How to Appeal a Denied Social Security Disability Claim

There are four appellate levels of Social Security Disability review available when a claim is denied.

If you need help with a Social Security disability appeal, there are options available. With the expertise of an experienced Social Security disability lawyer, you have a better chance at winning your appeal and receiving the benefits to which you are due. Adhering to the requirements and deadlines related to each step of the appellate process is critical to ensure your case is given maximum consideration.

Do You Qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits or Supplemental Security Income?

There are two different types of Social Security benefits: Disability Insurance Benefits ("DIB" or "Title II") and Supplemental Security Income ("SSI" or "Title XVI"). If you are interested in either, the first step is to go to your local Social Security office to apply or apply online at ssa.gov. Since you are already applying for disability, make sure you apply for both types at the same time. Regardless, to have a potentially-successful disability claim, you must have a physical or mental disability (or a combination of the two) that prevents you from engaging in substantial gainful activity (that is, working) and you are getting treatment for your disabilities, but you are still unable to work.
