Social Security: Appeals


Next »



This article covers the Social Security appeals process which applies to each of the following Social Security programs which all have the same appeals procedures and regulations:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Social Security Retirement Income (SSR)

It is helpful to have an experienced attorney or social worker at least review what documents you file for the first level of appeal. For appeals to a higher level,  your chances of winning approval will be increased if an attorney represents you. In addition to knowing the law, experienced attorneys know the judges and the experts. They also know what people want to hear and the way they what to hear it. Free or low cost attorneys may be available. See: How To Afford A Lawyer (Or Get One For Free)
