Common Reasons For Denied SSDI Benefits

Social Security has strict requirements for SSDI applicants. Often people’s legitimate claims for benefits are denied due to minor errors in the filing process. Our SSDI attorneys have more than 30 years of experience, and we can help you avoid mistakes, as well as guide you through the appeals process so you can get the disability benefits you need.

Following are common reasons for initial denials of SSDI benefits.

  • Insufficient evidence of work history and Social Security taxes paid
  • Insufficient medical documentation of the disability
  • Insufficient evidence showing that your disability has lasted or is expected to last a year or longer
  • Medical condition not covered by Social Security

In many cases, these grounds for denial are due to errors in the filing process when applicants try to handle their claims without help from an SSDI attorney. IMPORTANT: If your application for benefits has been denied, it is not the end of the road. Our team can assess your case, explain your options and help you get the disability benefits you need and deserve.
