The process of applying for Social Security Disability benefits is often long and complicated. There are four stages to the process, and while some applicants go through just one stage before being approved, others must go through all four before being approved or denied for benefits.

Stage 2: Reconsideration
When will I receive a decision?
What Happens during this stage?
- If your initial application was denied, we will file an appeal called a Request for Reconsideration.
- SSA reviews the original decision and determines whether it was correct under the law.
- At this stage, it is crucial that you continue to inform us of any changes in your condition and any new medical treatment that you have received. If there is a change in your medical condition, we may ask you to obtain a new Residual Function Capacity ("RFC") report from your doctor(s).
