How do I file an appeal in federal court?

If your claim is denied at the Appeals Council level, you may file an appeal in Federal District Court.

To file an appeal in Federal District Court, you must file a lawsuit within 60 days of the unfavorable Appeals Council decision against the Commissioner of Social Security. This lawsuit will be assigned to a Federal Judge, who will almost certainly transfer it to a Federal Magistrate who will hold arguments and issue a recommendation to the Federal Judge either recommending that your claim be sent back to the Social Security Administration or that it’s decision be upheld.
