Appeal of Disability Denials
Has Your Disability Claim Been Denied?
Let the Lowery Law Group review your claim and file your appeal at no charge.
If your initial disability application is denied, a request for reconsideration must be filed within 60 days of the initial denial notice.
At the reconsideration level, applications are reviewed by a different Social Security examiner. During the reconsideration process you will want to provide updated information regarding visits to your doctor or information on any new treatment that you have received. You will again be asked to complete forms regarding your daily activities and work history. The processing time at the reconsideration level is approximately 6 months from the date you file your appeal.
If your Social Security Disability claim is denied at the initial and reconsideration levels, you must file a request for a hearing within 60 days of the reconsideration denial. The majority of claims require a hearing, so if you have been denied at the first two levels do not become discouraged.
