How long do I have to appeal a denial of my social security disability claim?
Generally, you must file an appeal of a denial within 60 days of the receipt of the Denial letter from SSA. However, there are exceptions to this rule, and sometimes an extension of the time in which to file an appeal may be granted. You should consult with a disability attorney about the facts of your particular situation. The Law Office of Louis B. Lusk routinely files for these extensions, called “good cause” requests.
