If you receive a notification from the Social Security Administration informing you that the agency has determined that you no longer qualify for benefits, it is important to seek legal guidance immediately. Get in touch with a Los Angeles Social Security disability benefits lawyer and evaluate your options.

You can appeal a decision by the Social Security Administration to suspend your benefits. You must file an appeal within a period of 60 days from receiving the administration’s decision to stop disability benefits.

If you fail to file an appeal within the time limit of 60 days, then you must provide the Social Security Administration a valid reason for your failure to file a claim within the time limit. If the agency finds that you had a valid reason for missing the filing, then it may allow you to file your appeal.

Meanwhile, you can ask for your disability benefits to continue while you’re in the process of appealing the suspension of your benefits. However, for this, it is important that that you appeal within a period of 10 days after receiving a notification from the agency.

For help filing an appeal after your benefits are stopped, speak with a Los Angeles Social Security disability benefits lawyer.
