If you were denied Social Security disability benefits in your state, you can file an appeal. Social Security disability benefits are a federal program, so it is not state run. Instead, it is run nationally by Social Security Administration (SSA).
Those that are denied benefits, not matter what state they are in, can file a request for reconsideration. By filing this appeal, the SSA will reexamine your claim for disability benefits.

Filing an appeal is easy, regardless of what state you are in. Your denial letter will have the reason your claim was denied. You can then submit more evidence proving you qualify for disability benefits.
