Social security disability benefits are a great resource for those who can no longer work due to an impairment.

But oftentimes these applications are denied after first or second try. Below we review what to do if your application is denied for a second time.


When you are denied for the second time, you should file another online appeal on the official Social Security website within 60 days. It’s important to do this quickly as it speeds up the appeal process.


In the meantime, it’s important that you keep going to your doctor and continue doing everything they ask of you. You need to continue to develop objective medical evidence showing that your impairment is preventing you from working full time.


Finally, be prepared to attend a social security disability hearing before a social security judge. This will be your very best chance to get approved for disability benefits


That is what you should do when appealing a denied claim for the second time.
