If you have been denied for Social Security Disability benefits, we can guide you on how to re-apply for Social Security Disability. And, you can be approved to receive benefits dating back to the original date of your application — or up to a year before if you can prove your disability started that long ago.

Re-applying After a Denial
Time is critical when it comes to re-applying after a denial. This is because disability examiners that review application for benefits must follow strict guidelines. And, if there is no change with your claim since the last time you filed, you will most likely receive a denial.
However, if your disability has worsened or if you have significant medical evidence, then re-applying may be the appropriate decision.
If your first application was denied because of lack of key medical evidence, you may decide to re-apply now and submit the necessary medical records along with your application.
The Social Security Administration has strict guidelines for what it constitutes as a disability. You must provide medical evidence that shows you are disabled and therefore eligible for benefits. Therefore, it is important to speak with your healthcare provider to understand when it’s the best time to re-apply.
Keep in mind that no matter how many times you apply, if nothing is different with your application details, medical records, or your physical and/or mental limitations, then you’re likely to be denied every time. Yes, even if your doctor believes that you’ll be approved for disability.
Filing An Appeal Instead of Re-Applying
If your application was denied, you can file an appeal instead of re-applying. In this situation, your case will be reviewed by an administrative law judge. He or she may approve you for benefits, even if you previously applied and were denied more than once.
It’s important to know that while you wait for an appeal hearing, you can re-apply for benefits if something changes with your disability. If your condition worsens and you meet the Blue Book listing for your disability, you can submit a new application.
If you meet a disability listing exactly, then you more than likely will qualify for benefits. However, you will still need to ensure the Social Security Administration has access to your new medical records.
