iAppeals presents itself to IUs in the following sequence:
i561 or i501 – IU completes the request for appeal;
i3441 – IU completes the i3441;
e827 – qualified IUs can sign the e827 electronically, if they wish. Others must submit
a signed SSA-827 later.
The document attachment utility.
After answering the required questions in the i561, i501, i3441, and e827 (if applicable),
the IU can use the attachment utility to attach additional documents to the appeals
package. The end of the iAppeals screen path has a single “Submit Appeal” button.
When the IU selects the Submit Appeal button, iAppeals automatically submits all the
completed forms and attachments to SSA as one package.
NOTE: In this section, the word “completed” means that the IU provided, at the least, the
minimum amount of information required by the Internet forms. That does not necessarily
mean that the IU answered every item required for transfer to the Disability Determination
Services or hearing office.
