What are the steps of appealing a rejected SS claim?

Because so many Social Security disability benefits applications are rejected the first time, many applicants want to know more about the appeals process. In general, appealing a rejected claim will involve similar steps. These steps include:

  • Contacting an experienced attorney
  • Identifying the reason for your rejection
  • Arranging a hearing with a judge
  • Continuing to appeal – don’t give up initially

The appeals process can be lengthy, and many people have to wait months, even years, in order to get the Social Security disability benefits that they need. Often, however, the wait is worth it. And an attorney might actually speed up the process.
