When we receive your petition for appeal, we will review the decision. If we can correct the decision according to your demands, we will let you know and make the necessary corrections.
If we cannot correct the decision in the way you want, we will write a statement on the case and send it with the attachments to the Social Security Appeal Board for reviewing. We will also send the documents to you, so you can familiarise yourself with the reasoning for the decision and the documents on which the decision was based.
Together with the documents we will send you a letter on hearing. Once you have familiarised yourself with our statement, you can submit your view on the case to the Social Security Appeal Board within 30 days. At the same time you can, for example, point out if you think that an essential document has been neglected in the handling of the case. Send your reply to the hearing directly to the Social Security Appeal Board. The address of the Appeal Board can be found in the letter on hearing.
The Social Security Appeal Board will investigate the case and issue a decision. If the Appeal Board rejects your appeal, the original decision will remain in force. If the Appeal Board accepts your demands, it will repeal our decision and order the case to be handled again. We will then handle the case again, after which you will receive a new decision.
If you do not accept the decision of the Social Security Appeal Board, you can appeal against it to the Insurance Court. Instructions for appeal can be found in the decision of the Social Security Appeal Board. The decision of the Insurance Court cannot be appealed against.
