What happens when you decide to appeal an unfavorable decision regarding a claim for Social Security Disability benefits?
When you receive the Notice of Unfavorable Decision letter you will have approximately 60 days to file an appeal with the Social Security Administration. If you miss the deadline you may lose rights to disability benefits. After you meet with the attorney to discuss your situation the appeal will then be filed. It typically takes several months to receive an appeal hearing date. During this time, we will further interview you and gather the relevant medical evidence that will be attached as exhibits to the appeal. As we approach the hearing date, we will meet to prepare for the meeting.
