When a Social Security Disability applicant is denied Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income as a result of an initial disability claim, that applicant must appeal the SSA’s decision to deny their benefits if they hope to obtain the benefits they may be entitled to at some point in the near future. In most cases, an appeal will consist of a Request for Reconsideration and a disability hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.
When you are requesting a disability hearing before an ALJ, it is important that the administrative law judge have as much documented evidence about your disability as possible to thoroughly understand the nature of your case. This includes providing the ALJ with a list of all of the medications that you are required to take. This can be done by submitting Form HA 4632 to the Social Security Administration.
Unlike many of the other forms that are required when appealing a denial of your Social Security Disability claim, SSA Form HA 4632 does not get sent to your local Social Security office. Instead, this form is sent to the office that is handling your hearing request. This information can be found on the letter that you receive from the SSA acknowledging the receipt of your hearing request.
If you are working with a Social Security Disability attorney, you will not have to submit this letter yourself. Your attorney may go over the form with you, ensuring that all of the information provided is accurate and up-to-date, but he or she will file the form for you on your behalf with the proper SSA office.
