When a North Carolina resident has an injury, illness or condition that he or she believes warrants an approval for Social Security disability benefits, it can be a disappointment when the claim is denied. With that in mind, it is possible to appeal when denied disability or Supplemental Security Income or SSI. When the decision is made and the claimant does not agree with it, he or she can ask for an appeal. The decision will be looked at again and if it is deemed to have been denied in error, it can be reversed. There are four different levels of appeal: reconsideration, a hearing by an administrative law judge or ALJ, a review by the Appeals Council and a federal court review.
