Bad News for Social Security Disability Applicants Who Have Been Denied Their Benefits
The Social Security Administration has made it tougher for Social Security Disability applicants who have denied to get their Social Security Disability benefits while their denial is being appealed.
Social Security has enacted SSR 11-1p which changes Social Security’s policy that allowed an applicant that was denied to file a new claim while the denial was appealed.
You are going to have to chose between continuing with the administrative appeal or filing a new application, you can’t do both.
That’s bad for disability applicants who have been denied because you have to wait out the appeal process. That means that you are going to potentially have to go to the Appeals Council and maybe even to Federal Court before you get a decision rather than simply letting the appeal run and filing a new claim at the same time.
Social Security won’t let you be on two tracks anymore to get your Social Security Disability benefits.
That can be a problem because your quarters of coverage may expire.
This can cause significant problems for Social Security Disability applicants whose claims have been denied. You should immediately contact a qualified Social Security Disability attorney like Sharon Barrett to learn whether or not proceeding on an appeal or a new application is the best course for you.
