You can absolutely reapply, but you are likely to lose some benefits. The better option is to appeal. When social security denies your application, they give you either 30 or 60 days to get the appeal filed. If you don’t file the appeal, you have to start the process over again. Appealing the denials will retain your original filing date and preserve your rights to past benefits.
It’s important to understand why social security denied your application. They may not have enough in the way of medical records (they ask for them, but the doctors don’t always send them in), or you may have neglected to give them a piece of information they asked for. When you appeal, it’s important to review the letter carefully and see if there is any other information to supply that might help your case.
