Social Security Disability Insurance Appeals Process

You can appeal the Social Security Administration’s decision regarding your eligibility to receive Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI benefits. You can also appeal their decision regarding the amount you are eligible to receive each month. You should file your appeal within 60 days. You can extend that up to 2 years if you can show that you had a good reason to wait that long. You can write your request for appeal, or you can call the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213 and ask for the correct appeals form.

 

If you are appealing the Social Security Administration’s decision to terminate your SSDI, you can still get your SSDI payments during the time you are appealing if you ask for it within 10 days. At an administrative hearing, a judge determines whether or not you can continue to receive your payments during your appeal.

 

The steps to the appeal process are complex and confusing. You should talk to a knowledgeable attorney or advocate to assist you through the appeals process. For more information, you can call the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213, or visit them online at www.ssa.gov.
