Tick Tock – The Clock is Ticking on Your Appeal | Clearwater Social Security Disability Lawyer

Tick Tock! Tick Tock! Your claim for Social Security Benefits has been denied. Are you going to walk away from the money you are due or are you going to appeal the denial? Are you going to wait till the very last moment to appeal?

Don’t wait till the last moment! The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires an appeal be filed within 60 days. You actually get 5 more days for mailing. The SSA rules require that you file your appeal be submitted to SSA within 65 days. If your appeal letter is postmarked on the 65th day you are cutting it close but you are ok.

I recommend that you send your appeal certified mail, return receipt requested so you have proof that your appeal was timely submitted. This is for your own protection because if your appeal is lost in the mail and you can’t prove your mailed your appeal timely, you get to start all over.

Remember that you just can’t call your local SSA office and tell them you are appealing the denial of your claim. Your appeal must be in writing and timely filed. Tick Tock, Tcik Tock, don’t be late! For more information, and for more help with your claim, click here or call 727-894-3188.
