What is “Reconsideration” and who makes the reconsideration determination for Social Security Disability Benefits?
“Reconsideration” is the first step of the Social Security Disability (SSD) appeals process. You will need to initiate this process within 60 days after your initial claim has been denied. To start the reconsideration process you will need to fill out these two reports:
- Reconsideration Report
- Request for Reconsideration
It’s important to submit a request for reconsideration within the 60-day stipulated time period because after that date you will need to start right from scratch by making an initial claim. It is best to have an attorney represent you and help you prepare for your appeal. Statistics show that legal representation can greatly improve your chances of receiving SSD benefits. This is because social security attorneys are extremely knowledgeable about the social security disability reconsideration review process and know exactly what to do and how to do it.
