If I am denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, how soon must I appeal that decision?

Once you have filed your initial application for Social Security benefits, you may receive a “Notice of Disapproved Claim.” This means that you have been denied Social Security benefits by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you disagree with the SSA’s medical decision, you may appeal that decision by filing a “Request for Reconsideration.” This request must be filed within 60 days from the date that you receive the notice. If you do not meet that deadline, you will need to file the initial application over again or notify the SSA and have a valid reason for your untimely filing.
