Before you begin your online appeal, you should gather all necessary information you need to document your reasoning for the appeal, including medical treatment, testing information, a list of medication(s) you are currently taking and any changes in your medical condition, work, education and daily activities. You also need supporting documents, such as written statements, medical reports and other forms. Filing an appeal online does take some time. You have the ability to log off and finish your appeal paperwork at a later time.

Choosing to file your disability appeal online requires you to complete the appeal and the appeal disability report online and return your signed medical release forms to your local Social Security office. If you have any new medical records or documentation evidencing your claim, or any new test results, you should forward them to your local Social Security office as well. You can find your local Social Security office by utilizing the search option on the Social Security website.
