Understanding Your Decision

Most people get denied on their first appeal, so don’t get discouraged and don’t give up. You have 60 days to file your second appeal, which is a request for a hearing. When you file your second appeal, your claim will be sent to an Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) and you will be scheduled for a hearing. The Hearing Guide will teach you everything you need to know about the hearing process.
