File an Appeal If Your Application for SSI is Denied

If your application for SSI is denied and you disagree with that determination, file an appeal. You can file an appeal with the Social Security Administration online. You can also file an appeal via telephone, mail or by visiting your local Social Security Administration office.

If your application was denied for medical reasons, you can fill out the Appeal Request and Appeal Disability Report over the Internet. The report allows you to provide updated information about your disability and any treatment you received after having been denied SSI benefits.

If you are denied SSI for nonmedical reasons, visit your local Social Security Administration office or call the Social Security Administration’s national toll-free hotline (1-800-772-1213) to initiate an appeal. People who are hearing impaired can call the toll-free TTY hotline (1-800-325-0778).
