NL 00705.110 Model Letter G—Request For Reconsideration Filed On Denied Application Involving Issues Identical To Previously Denied Application—Same Law Applies

Prepare on SSA-L976-U2

Social Security Notice of Reconsideration

Upon receipt of your request for reconsideration, we had your claim reevaluated. To insure a new and independent decision, a special group other than the one that made the previous determination reviewed your case. All the evidence was considered; this includes the additional evidence and information received since the previous determination.

After a thorough evaluation of your case, it has been determined that the previous decision was correct. The information which you submitted does not show any new facts about your condition on or before (date) (A), (B). Therefore, since the facts are the same as those already considered in the past decision and since the same law applies, the decision remains in effect. If you have any new information, you may submit it for our review. It is not necessary to file a new application.

If you believe the reconsideration determination on your previous application is not correct, you may request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge of the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. The Administrative Law Judge may, however, dismiss the request for hearing if he finds that your new application presents the same issues, facts, and parties as your prior application, and the same laws, regulations, and ruling precedents apply. If you want to request a hearing, you must do so not later than 60 days from the date you receive this notice. You may make your request through any Social Security office. Please read the enclosed leaflet for a full explanation of you right to appeal.

(A) - when you last met the earnings requirement
(B) - when the specified period ended in your case

NOTE: This letter should be used only if there is no basis for reopening the prior substantive determination.
