The SSDI and SSI Appeals Process
If your application for SSDI or SSI benefits was denied, you have 60 days to file a Request for Reconsideration.
If you are still denied SSDI or SSI benefits after your Request for Reconsideration, you have 60 days to file a Request for Hearing, which is an administrative hearing to review your application. It takes between 12 and 18 months to have your hearing to review your SSDI or SSI for benefits.
If your SSDI or SSI benefits are denied at the hearing, you have 60 days to file a Request for Review of your hearing, which is basically an administrative appeal. Typically, your review will take 18–24 months.
If you are still denied SSDI or SSI benefits, you have 60 days to file a complaint in federal court, at which time your case will be heard and decided by a federal judge.
If you receive an adverse ruling from the federal court, you have 60 days to appeal the decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
