What To Do After Your SSI Claim is Denied

Receiving a denial letter is not the end of the road. Here’s what you need to do next:

  1. Read the Denial Letter Carefully: The Social Security Administration (SSA) will provide specific reasons for the denial.
  2. Gather Additional Evidence: Collect any new medical records or other documents that support your claim.
  3. Request an Appeal: You have 60 days from the date of the denial notice to request an appeal.

After a denial, you have the right to appeal. The appeals process can be complex, so consult with an experienced SSI attorney in Ontario to help to navigate your appeal and improve your chances of a positive outcome

How To Appeal a Denied SSI Claim

The appeals process involves four main stages:

  1. Reconsideration: This is the first level of appeal where a different SSA official reviews your claim.
  2. Hearing by an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ): If your reconsideration is denied, you can request a hearing before an ALJ.
  3. Appeals Council: If the ALJ denies your claim, you can request a review by the Social Security Appeals Council.
  4. Federal Court: As a final option, you can file a lawsuit in a federal district court.

Ontario SSI Lawyer FAQs

Eligibility for SSI benefits is based on several factors including age, disability status, income, and resources. The SSI program is designed to assist individuals who are aged, blind, or disabled with limited income and resources.

You can apply for SSI benefits online through the SSA website, by phone, or in person at your local Social Security office. An experienced SSI lawyer can assist you in completing your application accurately to avoid delays or denials.

You can apply for SSI benefits at the local Social Security office located in Ontario. You can also start your application online or call the SSA’s toll-free number to schedule an appointment.

The approval process for SSI benefits can vary, but it typically takes three to five months for the SSA to process an application. Factors such as the completeness of your application and the need for additional medical evidence can affect this timeline.

As of 2024, the maximum federal SSI payment is $943 per month for individuals and $1,415 per month for couples. California provides an additional supplement, so the amount may be higher for residents in Ontario.

Receiving other public benefits, such as food stamps (SNAP) or housing assistance, does not generally affect your eligibility for SSI benefits. However, it’s important to report all sources of income and benefits to the SSA.

Yes, you can work while receiving SSI benefits, but there are strict income limits. The SSA has programs like the Ticket to Work program that help SSI recipients transition back to work without immediately losing their benefits.

Non-citizens may be eligible for SSI benefits if they meet certain conditions, such as being a lawful permanent resident with a qualifying disability or being in a specific category of non-citizens allowed to receive SSI.

It’s advisable to hire an SSI lawyer as soon as you decide to apply for benefits or if you receive a denial. An experienced lawyer can guide you through the application process, help you gather necessary documentation, and represent you in appeals if needed.
