The Four Different Types of Appeal: Appeals Council Review
Posted in: Application Process on September 23rd, 2011

disability appealWhile applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, many people end up in the process of appeal. Generally speaking, the first two steps of appeal are reconsideration and hearing. In the event that going through these first two steps does not end up getting you an approval for disability insurance, and you would still like to pursue it, the next step is an appeals council review.

What Is An Appeals Council Review?

An appeals council review is essentially a way of appealing the decision of an administrative judge. Thusly, you will have needed to have had a hearing before applying for this step. If you would like to apply for an appeals Council review, you need to fill out and submit a Request for Review of Decision/Order of Administrative Law Link. You cannot fill this out online; you will need to either print it off and mail it to your local Social Security Administration Office or go in to the local Social Security Administration Office and fill it out there. Once the Social Security Administration receives this paperwork, they will send it back to the Office of Disability Adjudication And Review.

Once the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review receives your request, they will go over the information that you provided in your original application, your additional information, and the results from your previous two appeals. At this point, they will make another decision on your case and notify you in writing.

People who have been denied for appeals through a hearing or reconsideration often undertake an appeals Council review. Good luck with your application for disability insurance, and be sure to read all of the information you can about the subject before you apply.
