Where do I start?
If you are denied benefits there are important deadlines you need to file documents by in order to preserve your right to appeal. If you are denied benefits after your Initial Application, you have 60 days from the date of Notice to file a Request for Reconsideration. If you are again denied at the Reconsideration level you have 60 days to file a Request for a Hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. In very limited circumstances Social Security will accept a late appeal if there is a showing of good cause. If you miss a deadline you very well may have to start the whole process over again with a new application. This means loss of potential benefits/money! Contact us as soon as you receive a notice!
