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. When you ask for an appeal, we will look at the entire decision, even those parts that were in your favor. If our decision was wrong, we will change it. 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?
