Social Security Ruling 19-3p; Titles II and XVI: Requesting Reconsideration or Hearing by an Administrative Law Judge
We are giving notice of SSR 19-3p. This SSR explains the two options available to claimants appealing our determinations that they are not disabled based on medical factors. In this SSR, we explain both the paper and electronic appeal options for requesting reconsideration or a hearing by an administrative law judge (ALJ), and the similarities and differences between these two options. We explain these options to help claimants make informed decisions when deciding whether to use the paper appeal or electronic appeal option to request reconsideration or a hearing.
