IF YOUR INITIAL APPLICATION IS DENIED, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO APPEAL BY FILING A REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION; IT MUST BE FILED WITHIN 60 DAYS OF THE DATE OF THE DENIAL LETTER. YOUR APPEAL WILL REQUIRE YOU TO COMPLETE AND SUBMIT EVEN MORE FORMS.
IT’S A NO-BRAINER DECISION
The Social Security Administration (SSA) deliberately made the claims process hard and discouraging.
Your Request for Reconsideration goes back to the same Disability Determination Services (DDS) office that denied your Initial Application. So don’t be surprised if it’s denied: only 12% of Requests for Reconsideration are granted. More applicants give up here. Of those denied, 30% give up, and 70% appeal and file a Request for Hearing.
This is not the time to quit. At the Hearing level, the odds for represented applicants swing in your favor. At a hearing, Administrative Law Judges award over 66% of Social Security Disability claims.
THE LESSON: DON’T GIVE UP!
