Due to the vast number of disability applications that are filed, it is important for applicants to adhere to the timelines that are set by the SSA for filing disability appeals. In fact, only about 36% of disability applications are approved by the SSA.
In order to improve the chances of getting your appeal reviewed favorably, you should be aware of the timelines that the SSA has put in place for every stage of the appeals process. In Social Security cases, an appeal that is submitted late could lead to the loss of benefits altogether and/or the need to submit a fresh application. Timing is everything, and this article will show you why.
