When a Social Security Disability denial is issued, the claimant has the right to file an appeal of the decision. Doing so has proven to be a long and drawn out process for many in the past. Now, changes have been made to the online filing system in order to make filing SSDI appeals much easier and more efficient.

Users outside the United States are also now able to access the system.
