Appealing A Denial of Your Request for Reconsideration | Spring Hill Social Security Disability Attorney

You have been denied a second time.

You have two options. Give up (never) or appeal the denial of your Request for Reconsideration (always)!

So what do you have to do next? You must file a Request for Hearing within 60 days from the date of the Request for Reconsideration. If you don’t, you simply won’t get a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).

You want that opportunity to tell the ALJ your story… but it is not the story you think you should tell.

When you were is school I am sure you had a teacher who wanted you to “tell them what they wanted to hear.”

It is the same thing when you are in front of the ALJ. You don’t want to tell them your story… you want to tell the ALJ the Social Security story and explain how you meet the criteria in the 5 steps we have talked about.

But, you won’t get to tell that story unless you timely file an appeal of the denial of your Request for Reconsideration. For more in-depth help contact our skilled attorneys here.
