3.1. Non-Medical Appeals online
As of December 10, 2016, an applicant now has the ability to file non-medical denial and adverse action appeals online. You can appeal a wide range of decisions, including denial of benefits, date of entitlement, and overpayment.
Online appeals applications allow a customer to complete and submit the Request for Reconsideration and Request for Hearing by Administrative Law Judge to Social Security online.
The application incorporates appeals of non-medical denial decisions with features already available, including uploading supporting documents online. In addition, people living outside the United States can also utilize this new service.
This expansion will reduce the need for travel to a field office, as well as lessen the time to process non-medical appeals and associate the supporting documents.
