Why are SSDI Claims Denied?
There are a number of common reasons for Social Security Disability claims to be denied. Remember, most claims are denied at first. Here are some of the reasons you might see in your denial letter:
- The ailment (medical problem) must be severe. Yours is not severe enough.
- Your disability must prevent you from working. While you have a severe ailment, you can still work.
- Your medical evidence doesn’t support that you have a disability. This means that you didn’t have enough in the way of doctor or other proof to show that you are disabled.
- Some kind of technicality. This normally comes from failing to fill out the form correctly. The form is actually pretty complicated and it is easy to make a mistake.
- If you were instructed to go to a specific doctor or other appointment, and you failed to go, you will be denied.
