The Four Different Types of Appeal: Reconsideration
Posted in: Application Process on September 21st, 2011

disability appealIf you are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, it is highly likely that you will end up in appeals. Should this be the case, there are four different kinds of appeal that you can file. Here, we speak a little bit about that kind of appeal called reconsideration.

Will They Reconsider?

If you are looking to apply for reconsideration, you need to complete a Request for Reconsideration and an Appeal Disability Report. You can complete these forms either online, by mail, or in person at your local Social Security Administration office. When you complete these forms, the Social Security Administration will submit your application and these forms to the State Disability Determination Office in your state.

At this point, an employee of the State Disability Determination Office will review your application and make a new determination on whether or not you should be awarded benefits. This person will be different then the individual who made the decision on your original application. After reviewing your medical records, and your reasons for appeal, the State Disability Determination Office will inform you of their decision in writing.

Reconsideration is likely the most common form of appeal. Should you end up getting denied for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, it is likely that this where you will start.  Keep in mind that this process can take weeks, if not years. It can take you a very long time to get through the appeals process for either one of these insurance programs, so be sure to be able to organize your information and furnish it when requested to do so. This will help you get through the appeals process much faster!
