Can You Appeal a Social Security Disability Denial?
When it comes to applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you are more likely to be denied than you are approved. However, you have options if Social Security denies your application.

According to a survey published by Disability Secrets, there did appear to be a difference in the time to receive a decision following an appeal. Those who had an appeal approved were notified in about seven weeks while denials were issues in about ten weeks. The likely reason for this difference is that a written decision for a denial of benefits must be much more detailed (standing up to additional appeal) than an approval.
