En español | If you disagree with a decision by the Social Security Administration, you can appeal it. That means you can ask the agency to look at your case again. There are four levels of appeal. If you are not satisfied with the decision at one level, you may appeal to the next. Social Security will send you letters informing you of its decisions — you have 60 days after that to request an appeal. You must request it in writing. You can call SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to ask for an appeal form or send it a signed note with your Social Security number stating that you wish to appeal a decision. You may choose to have someone help you with your appeal or to represent you. Your representative may be a lawyer or other qualified person familiar with you and the Social Security program. People who have legal representation have a better chance of prevailing in their appeals. There is no average length of time for how long it takes to get a hearing. It will depend on how many other appeals are ongoing.
