  • Social Security Appeals Process

    When the Social Security Administration makes a decision on your claim, we will send you a letter explaining our decision. If you do not agree with our decision, you can appeal—that is, ask us to look at your case again.

This document answers the following questions: (1) When and how can I appeal? (2) How many appeal levels are there? (3) Will my benefits continue? (4) Can someone help me? Content Detail
