If you’re denied at the hearing level, that is, in front of the judge, you cannot get another hearing on the claim that was heard by the judge. You can, however, file a new claim and start the whole process all over again. Unfortunately, very often, unless there’s been a change, Social Security will take a look at the prior determination, and will kind of rubber stamp it on your next application. So it’s important to make sure that your claim is handled properly. You’ll also lose back benefits if you lose the claim, even if you win on a successive application.
