If you are denied benefits upon your initial application, you have sixty (60) days in which you may file an appeal, or a “Request for Reconsideration.” At this point it is advisable to consult with an attorney who can help you provide the documentation necessary for the Administration to approve your claim. If you are denied benefits at the Request for Reconsideration stage of your claim, you have sixty (60) days from the date of the denial to file a Request for a Hearing. Your Social Security Disability Insurance claim hearing will be held at the Social Security Administration Office of Disability and Adjudication and Review’s Boston location, located at One Bowdoin Square. It is advisable to have an attorney represent you at the Hearing in front of the Administrative Law Judge.
