Request for Reconsideration Required
As of January 2019, Colorado disability claimants are now required to file a request for reconsideration after an initial level disability denial. Essentially, an additional appeal is now required in Colorado before a claimant can have a hearing before an administrative law judge. Colorado residents can expect to wait longer for a disability hearing as it is likely that only a small percentage of applicants will be awarded at the request for reconsideration level. If you are in the process of filing for social security disability, don’t let this additional step discourage you. Having a judge hear your claim may change the outcome.
