What is reconsideration?

If you have received an initial denial of your disability claim and feel the decision is incorrect, you should file a Request for Reconsideration.This is the second step in the administrative process. It is important to timely appeal the denial of your claim. The deadline to file the appeal is usually 60 days from date of the decision. A request for reconsideration can be filed online or by filing a paper form or by an attorney in their office.
