I screwed up applying for SSDI. I misunderstood the instructions and thought my social security wouldn't be processed until I sent the files in and completed the online form. Clearly I was wrong, because I got a denial and it was because I haven't sent them anything. Should I just apply a second time? Or try to appeal it?
When turned down initialy (ms) you have 60 days to appeal their decision.
Don't be afraid to communicate with your local office for any questions or concerns. Ask them how to proceed. Good luck on your next try.
