Social Security Disability "unfavorable" ruling:What should I do next?
5 attorney answers
I agree with my colleagues. To determine the merits of your case, you need to have an attorney review your case. Various factors will determine whether you should reapply or appeal.
Find an attorney that is familiar with the appeal process (some no longer do appeals) to explain to you the appeal process. There are pros and cons to appealing and this decision requires a case specific analysis. The Appeals Council has somewhat limited discretion in remanding (sending back) your decision for further consideration. You could be wasting time with an appeal. Also, you need to make sure you can still make a timely appeal. Best of luck.
You need to bring that decision to an experienced attorney who can lay out the advantages and disadvantages of appealing versus re-applying, and then help you throughout the rest of the process.
