Social Security Administration Reconsideration Appeals

When: Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET.

When the Social Security Administration (SSA) informs an older adult that it is going to reduce or terminate that person’s Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security benefit, it is important to know how to appeal the action.

Filing a Request for Reconsideration is the first step in SSA’s administrative appeal
process. Thousands of reconsideration requests are filed every year, on a wide variety of issues. However, beneficiaries who file these appeals are usually unrepresented. Even though SSA often errs in taking action to reduce or terminate benefits, beneficiaries have difficulty finding assistance from advocates in requesting reconsideration to challenge
these incorrect determinations.

Participants in this free webcast, Social Security Reconsideration Appeals, will learn about handling reconsideration appeals at SSA. We will explain the step-by-step process when requesting reconsideration, key due process protections, and how to advocate effectively for beneficiaries in commonly encountered scenarios.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will
be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.
