A. Model Letter Exhibit

Prepare on SSA-L951-C2/U2

Social Security Notice


We have determined that you are not entitled to disability insurance benefits because you do not meet the disability requirement of the law. In reaching this decision, we considered how much your condition has affected your ability to work. After a careful study of the records of your case, including the medial evidence and your statements and considering your age, education, training and experience, it has been determined that your condition was not disabling within the meaning of the law.

(1) Attached to this notice is an explanation of the decision we made on your claim and how we arrived at it.

(2) Insert personalized explanation.

If your condition should get worse and prevent you from doing any substantial gainful work, you should write or call at your Social Security office about filing another disability claim. Our records show that you meet the earnings requirement for disability purposes until (date last insured).

For persons disabled because of statutory blindness, there is a different earnings requirement. Our records show that you meet this earnings requirement until (date last meets full insured status).

No benefits may be paid to the wife, husband, or child unless the wage earner or a self-employed person is entitled to disability benefits.

If you believe that this determination is not correct, you may request that your case be re-examined. If you want this reconsideration, you must request it not later than 60 days from the date you receive this notice. You may make any such request through any Social Security office. If additional evidence is available, you should submit it with your request.

If you do not request reconsideration of your case within the prescribed time period, you still have the right to file another application at any time.

If you have questions about your claim, you should get in touch with any Social Security office. Most questions can be handled by telephone or mail. If you visit an office, however, please take this letter with you.
