You can file an appeal using the Internet, call your local Social Security Office or print and fill out the necessary paperwork and mail it in or deliver it in person to your local Social Security Office. To initially file a disability appeal, you are not required to work with an attorney. When you have an attorney at your side, however, you can be sure that your interests and rights will be protected so you have the best opportunity of having your appeal approved at this point.

How do I file an appeal?

To properly file a disability appeal, you will need to complete a disability report and sign medical release forms along with your request for an appeal. The Social Security Administration will then send your case to the State Disability Determination Services Office, where a complete review of medical records will be completed, and a new decision will be made regarding your case.

You will be notified in writing in regard to their decision. There are further steps that can be taken in the appeal process if you are still not satisfied with the outcome of your claim, a hearing, appeals council review, and then a district court case. You will need to hire a lawyer if you reach the district court case.
