After a denial of a Social Security Disability claim, the app has a specified period of time during which to file an appeal. The deadline for appealing an SSD ruling is 60 days from the day of denial, but 5 more days are added to account for mailing time. The 65-day deadline applies to requests for the review of a decision, requests for disability hearings and reconsideration appeals.
Indiana residents who apply for Social Security Disability Insurance are likely to have their initial applications denied. Only 35 percent of initial applications are accepted, which means many will need to go through the appeal process. However, a reconsideration appeal is also likely to be denied because it is examined at the same office. While it is reviewed by a different person, he or she is typically looking at the same evidence.
