Im afraid that my SSDI appeal is going to be denied.whats my next step and how much longer will that take.


  • Someone gave me this site on Disability questions and there's real claims adjusters and others who have had problems or wondering how long this claims takes. I hope I can post this site someone gave me. It was helpful for me.
    I wish you the best for your appeal. Charry

  • Richard:

    While you are waiting for the next step in your appeal process, you can also file a BRAND NEW CLAIM with your local office. Just let them know you have an appeal and which step in the process it is.

    If your new claim is approved, there is a chance your prior denial could be re-opened and re-evaluated for a whole new decision (if that makes any sense). This way, you won't have wasted precisous time if in the event you have to actually file another claim...

    Good luck Richard!
