I'm not sure what level of appeals you were denied at.

If you were denied by the ALJ, then your next step is to: a) file a request for review with the Social Security Appeals Council, if you think the ALJ made serious errors in your case. or b) file a new application with additional evidence, using the day after the denial decision as the onset date. You can no longer do both at the same time.

If you were declined a review by the Social Security Appeals Council, then your next step is to file suit in District Court AND file a new application of disability. Whether or not you file suit should be up to you and your lawyer.

Are you talking reconsideration level?

You will need to go to see the ALJ. Believe it or not, 60 percent of all claims are denied until they reach the ALJ level. Then 80 percent that go to the ALJ or above usually win.

It is really expected to get turned down by your state level DDS. Disability Determination Services who do the initial and reconsideration phases.

They should change their name to the Detrimental Denial Service as they deny most everything unless you have stage 4 cancers. ( I have seen them deny those too so you are not alone)

The attitude should be how can we assist this person to get their earned benefits but in reality it is this. Why is this dirt bag trying to get something from us.

So friend, you fight, get involved, get an attorney, get mad and fight harder.

You will win.


A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.

even people with Stage 4 cancer like me are kick in the teeth the first time.

Spit your teeth at them, and get a lawyer, a ssd lawyer!
