Time is not on your side.  Sixty (60) days from the date of the decision, if you wish to appeal, you must file in Federal District Court.  If you don't have a lawyer, and want to appeal, you better start looking. An issue that is important is "date last insured."  The ALJ put that date in the decision after your hearing.  If that date is in the future, a new application may be the correct route.   A new application can be filed even if you do file the Federal Court action. A consultation with an experienced attorney would be recommended at this point.   If you have not had an attorney until now, you should meet with one.

You can either proceed to federal court for further appeal or you may start a new claim with SSA.  Which way to proceed depends upon the facts of you individual claim.  You have deadlines running either way.
