Filing for a Disability Appeal Online

Filing for a Disability Appeal Online

If your application for disability benefits is denied, you can file an appeal to challenge the denial alone. In order to do so, you will need to have a copy of your Notice of Decision. As well, you will want to have a collection of general information. This includes your name, your Social Security number, your address, and your phone number.

If you are being represented in your appeal by an attorney, then you will want to provide the SSA with your representative's name, address and phone number. You will also want to provide the SSA with references when you file for an appeal. Provide the name, address, and phone number of a friend or relative that knows about your medical condition so that that individual can testify on your behalf for the SSA. This reference may be able to prove that you deserve benefits, and may be able to help you in your quest to get the assistance that you need.

Also, when applying online make sure to describe any changes and new medical conditions that have resulted since your last application. Provide the names, addresses, phone numbers, and types of treatment that you have received from all doctors, hospitals and clinics. It may be wise to provide all visit dates as well. Name all medications that you are currently taking as well as who prescribed them to you.

If they are causing serious side effects, make sure to list those in your appeal as well. Also, name the location an date of all medical tests that you have had and who recommended that you get them completed. With all of this information prepared and ready, and an aggressive SSDI attorney on your side, you may be able to launch an online appeal that will eventually result in acceptance.
