Reconsideration is the first level of appeal for a denied claim. Let’s review that process, there is an initial application that is made, either through a computer or in person at social security. If the claim is turned down at that level, you can file for reconsideration. It’s the same general population that will review your case to see whether they overlooked something extremely significant in your case. If they find that they have, they can change their minds. Very hard to get people to change their minds, people don’t like to admit that they were wrong. Nationally only ten percent of reconsideration’s filed are successful. Nevertheless, you must file for reconsideration to get to the next level, which is the hearing level in front of a real judge.
