How to get an SSDI reconsideration appeal approved
If you have a reconsideration appeal pending, in all candor you do not have a very good chance of being approved. Statistics vary from year to year, and from state to state. In the state of North Carolina, to use one example, it was not unusual to have reconsideration approvals not exceed 14 percent of all reconsideration appeals filed.
According to one source, national statistics suggest that an average of 10 to 12 percent of reconsideration appeals end in an approval for disability. So what can get a SSDI reconsideration appeal approved? There are a couple of ways to potentially get your reconsideration approved.
1. The Social Security Disability Approval Process,
2. Tips for Getting Disability Approved,
3. How does a person get approved for disability?
If you submit new and “compelling” medical evidence that supports a finding of disabled, your reconsideration may be approved. This could be new medical evidence or even medical evidence from a source you provided but Social Security did not consider.
Another avenue that may result in your reconsideration appeal being approved could be the disability examiner who made your initial disability decision made an error in their determination that would make caused their decision incorrect.
Do not give up if your reconsideration appeal is not approved, as this is for most just a necessary step toward their disability hearing with an administrative law judge. This level of the Social Security disability process has the highest chance of approval.
