My claim for Social Security disability benefits was denied at Reconsideration- what can I do?

If your claim for Social Security disability benefits was denied at Reconsideration- you can appeal
When you submit the Request for Reconsideration form, the SSA will review your case and reconsider all the facts. You are afforded the opportunity to present more supportive documents for them to review during this time. You can submit additional medical records, statements from third parties, and more information about your jobs.

However, most people are denied at Reconsideration – historically less than 13% of claims are approved at Reconsideration…
