How to Fill out Form HA-4486 in Washington, D.C.
If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability benefits, you’re not alone.
Most people get denied the first time they apply. You should consider appealing the decision. Filling out a Form HA-4486 is an important part of the appeal process you have to follow.
Don’t wait to appeal, because the Social Security Administration (SSA) has a deadline for appeals and could make you start your application again if you’re too late.
One of the first steps to appealing is submitting Form HA-4486 to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
The form is called “Claimant’s Statement When Request for Hearing is Filed and the Issue is Disability.”
You’ll need to fill out that form, along with Form SSA-3441-BK, which is called “Disability Report – Appeal.”
WHAT INFORMATION GOES ON FORM HA-4486?
This form will ask you to update what has happened with your medical and work situation since you first applied for benefits.
- Has your health changed for better or worse?
- How have your daily activities changed?
- What new medical treatment have you received?
This form gives you the opportunity to describe your condition, and you should take advantage of the chance to explain your case.
Remember to always keep your medical records as you undergo treatment. When you see a judge at a hearing, your medical evidence and work history will be crucial to your case.
