If a social security claim is denied, an administrative judge will usually issue a decision within thirty days following the hearing. An unfavorable decision must be appealed within sixty days of receipt. Rarely is a decision reversed by the appeals council, but a well-prepared case can be won. The first of four appeal levels is called a reconsideration, which gives you an opportunity to submit any new evidence not previously considered. If an application is denied and the individual still believes that he are she is truly disabled, then the person should appeal. An appeal can be accomplished by following the directions set forth in the denial notice and can often be done by telephone or mail. For more information, talk with your local Social Security office or with an attorney who is knowledgeable in social security law.
