If your initial application was denied, you have two options to appeal the denial:
- Request a review by the Appeals Council
- Take the case to Federal court
The Appeals Council
After the application is denied, the claimant has 60 days to request a review by the appeals council. This is the perfect time to consult with an experienced attorney who is familiar with the rules and regulation of the Social Security Administration (SSA). The appeal council will examine the request for review, and determine whether or not the hearing decision was correct. If the appeal council decision is in favor of the claimant, then the case itself is sent to an administrative law judge for further review.
Do not miss the 60-day deadline. If missed, the claimant must restart the entire process with a new application.
The Federal Court
If the appeal council’s decision is unfavorable, they will either deny your claim or decide not to review it.At this point, the claimant can file a lawsuit in a federal district court. The time limit is 60 days from this decision. Thus, the sooner the lawsuit’s filed the better.
