Denied Disability Benefits? Now what?

Most people who apply for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) or Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) are denied the first time. The chances of getting approved for benefits improve for individuals who take the time to appeal a denial.

How long do you have to appeal a Social Security Disability denial?

In Ohio, the deadline to appeal a denial of a disability claim is 60 days from the date of the denial. If someone misses this deadline, they will need to restart the entire disability process by filing a new application for benefits.
