Top Five Reasons for Social Security Denial

Top Five Reasons for Social Security Denial

If your application for Social Security disability benefits has been denied, you need to know Social Security denial isn’t the end of the road. The Team at Stanley Law is here to fight for you and guide you through the appeals process.

It takes true grit to win a case. We’re there for you every step of the way and may even be able to expedite your case under some circumstances. There are five common reasons Social Security claims are denied: income guidelines, length of disability, and documentation problems.

  • Income Guidelines

Disability claims are often disallowed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) when applicants earn more than the substantial gainful activity (SGA) limit. The SSDI limit is a bit higher than the SSI limit, and if your income is higher than the allowable maximum of the program, the SSA is likely to deny your claim.

Because you never know what’s just around the corner, and if you’re earning money from wages when you apply for Social Security disability, the Stanley Law Offices are here to help you get the compensation owed.

  • Not Enough Medical Evidence

Many disability cases are denied when applicants don’t provide enough evidence to support their medical condition. The SSA may require applicants to be examined by an SSA physician, or the administrator may deny your application if the evidence isn’t readily available.

No matter what the medical reason is for your disability claim, don’t go it alone. The attorneys at Stanley Law Offices are here to help you through the entire process, and we’ll leave no stone unturned.

  • Refusal To Submit Medical Documents

When you apply for Social Security disability, be prepared to share medical records. For your claim to be allowed, you must cooperate with SSA requests for documentation concerning your condition. It’s also essential that your physician provide complete, accurate notes.

If you don’t have a regular doctor, you’ll be asked to undergo a consultative examination (CE) to make a decision on your claim. If you have any questions or concerns about managing the paperwork for your SSA case, Joe knows, and he’s ready to help you complete the process successfully.

  • Not Following The Doctor’s Prescribed Treatment

Following the treatment your doctor prescribes is essential when you’re applying for disability benefits. The person reviewing your complaint must have complete information about your medical treatment and its efficacy to determine if you’re entirely impaired. If you haven’t followed your treatment plan, your disability can’t be accurately determined.

If your condition results from a workplace injury, consider meeting with an attorney from our dedicated worker’s compensation team; they can help you find the correct legal action for your situation. Our team works to get you the MAXIMUM AWARD you deserve , whether through SSA or your previous employer.

  • Expectation Of A Short-Term Disability

If you have a short-term disability or impairment, your claim is likely to be denied. Social security disability is meant to be used for impairments that last more than 12 months, result in vision loss, or ensue the death of the claimant.

You need and deserve the Maximum Reward when you’re fighting for benefits you’ve earned through the Social Security system, and we’re here to help you get it.
