What if I disagree with Social Security and need to file an appeal?

You should always file your appeal as soon as possible.  If you wait, you might miss out on continuing benefits. You must file within 60 days of receiving your decision unless there's a good cause reason for filing late.  


In most Social Security cases, there are four levels of appeal:

  • reconsideration
  • a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ)
  • a review by the appeals council
  • a review in federal court


LSNC does not assist with initial applications for benefits and any related disability application denials.  LSNC can assist with post-entitlement issues, meaning that you were on benefits and now Social Security is saying that you are no longer disabled or have any overpayment.
