60 days to appeal

From the date that your Social Security Disability claim is denied, you have 60 days to appeal.

Dave, in San Clemente, California asks “I just received the notice that my application for disability was denied, how long do I have to appeal?”

From the date that your Social Security Disability claim is denied, you have 60 days to appeal. When you appeal, your case will be sent back to Disability Determination Services for re-evaluation. Most reconsideration appeals are denied, however, some are approved. If your condition has worsened and it is reflected in your updated medical records, then there is a good chance that you could win your appeal.

If your appeal is denied, then you have 60 days to request a disability hearing.

A disability hearing is where you will have your best chance at winning your disability claim. If you are represented by an experienced disability attorney then the chances of you winning your disability hearing can be very high. Disability attorneys have a good understanding of all the rules and regulations that govern Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income. Disability attorneys handle many disability cases each week and they know what it takes to win.
