Common Reasons for Denial of Benefits
The Social Security Administration (SSA) is a huge department that processes millions of applications each year. They are bound to make mistakes and sometimes, applicants make errors when filling out their applications as well.
Some reasons that the SSA denied your application for benefits may include:
- They believed you make too much money - since SSD/SSI is intended for people who are unable to work, if you make more than around $1,500 a month, you may be denied. Income from investments does not count, but it is possible that they are counting a previous income that you are no longer able to make due to your injury.
- They believed your disability isn’t serious enough - the SSA intends for SSD/SSI to be paid out to people who are unable to work for a significant amount of time. If they think that your injury will not last more than one year, then they may deny you. This is a subjective claim that we can fight aggressively.
- They believed you are not following the suggested therapy - the SSA requires that you follow doctor’s orders in order to heal properly and to qualify for SSD/SSI. There are exceptions to the rule though, including not being mentally well enough to follow the therapy or not being able to afford it. We can help you appeal this to the SSA.
