Most people who apply for Social Security disability benefits are denied. If your claim was denied, you need to appeal the denial before the deadline or you may have to begin the application process all over again. are potentially several steps along the way at which your claim may be denied. In general, you have sixty (60) days to appeal a denial.
In some cases, you can argue that you had a good reason for missing a deadline. Also, in some cases, the Social Security Administration will reopen an old application that was denied and not appealed.
You need to take any denial and any deadline very seriously !
