Common reasons for Social Security Disability denials

Based on years of experience, Having handled various types of matters involving Social Security Disability from Charlotte to Burlington, we at Lanier Law Group, P.A. have a deep understanding of Social Security Disability law.

If your application for Social Security Disability is denied for any of the following reasons, you can appeal the SSA’s initial decision:

  • Your income is too high: One of the primary reasons applicants are denied is that their monthly income is too high. In 2013, you have to earn no more than $1,040 a month to qualify.
  • The SSA cannot find you: If the SSA cannot contact you, your application for Social Security Disability benefits may be denied.
  • Your disability is temporary: To qualify for SSDI benefits, your disability must last at least 12 months or result in your death. An exception is made for applicants who are blind.
  • You do not follow your doctor’s orders: If your physician prescribes you a certain therapy, and you refuse to follow it, your application may be denied.
  • You do not cooperate with the SSA: To assess your case, the SSA needs your medical records and other pertinent information. Failure to allow the SSA access to these documents can result in your application being denied.
