Who needs an SSA Form 3441-BK?
A person seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) Benefits whose initial claim has been denied can still appeal the decision. In order to make an appeal, an SSD benefits applicant must submit their Disability Report - Appeal (viz. SSA Form 3441-BK). The form was created by the Social Security Administration to enable the applicants to appeal the refusal in SSD benefits and provide additional details and documents that might aid in the reconsideration process.
