How does the appeals process work?
An eligible individual or eligible spouse who is a recipient or applicant for SSI payments has a right to appeal our decision as to eligibility or amount of payment. Time limits apply to each step in the appeals process. Extensions are possible if good cause for the delay can be established. (See §2196.) For the purpose of determining the expiration of a time limit, a notice or decision is presumed to have been received within five days of its date, unless there is evidence to the contrary. See §2014.
