It is generally a serious mistake to file a new application instead of appealing. Filing a new application is more likely to delay your claim than to increase your chances of winning and may cause you to lose your benefits completely.  In certain situations, a failure to appeal may cause you to lose your right to file a new application.  While there are situations, such as a Partially Favorable Decision by an administrative law judge, where it is sometimes advisable to file a new application rather than to appeal these situations are very rare, and you should never take this action without the advice of a very experienced social security advocate.
