Many people apply for Social Security income because of a disability and are denied by the Social Security Administration. But that letter received in the mail is not the final word. Individuals can move through the appeals process and there is a possibility they will be approved.
Individuals have 60 days to file an appeal after you receive their letter, called the initial denial. Reconsideration is the next level of appeal. Individuals can pick up forms at their local Social Security office or request them by mail. The Reconsideration request is reviewed by a different set of employees and not the ones who first reviewed your request.
