To apply for disability benefits, begin by selecting the age category
of the disabled person:
If your application has recently been denied, the Internet Appeal is a starting point
to request a review of our decision about your eligibility for disability
If your application is denied for:
- Medical reasons, you can complete and submit the required Appeal Request and Appeal Disability Report online.
The disability report asks you for updated information about your medical condition and any treatment, tests or doctor visits since we made our decision.
- Non-medical reasons, you should contact your local Social Security Office to request the review. You also may call our toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213, to request an appeal. People who are deaf or hard of hearing can call our toll-free TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.
