Why Your Social Security Disability Claim May Have Been DeniedAppealing a denial for SSI or SSDI benefits

Most people that appeal an initial SSI or SSDI denial do so with representation such as a Social Security disability lawyer. Your representative will provide you with instructions on how to appeal and how to continue to document your disability. Your representative will be able to contact the Social Security Administration on your behalf once paperwork is filed designating the representative.

If you want to appeal on your own, you may go to the Social Security web site and do so at https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6z/iAppeals/ap001.jsp. If you later decide to get the help of a representative for your hearing, you can do that at any time. However, be sure to leave your representative enough time to prepare so that your SSI or SSDI claim may be presented in the best light possible. Hiring a good disability lawyer sooner rather than later may help you from exhausting appeals needlessly and assist you in receiving your benefits sooner.
