When filling out the forms, there was an error
There is no getting past the fact that the Social Security system is perplexing. It is densely packed with rules, regulations, and paperwork, all of which can be perplexing to anybody who is forced to cope with them. Even a little blunder might result in a denial. Your case must be clear, and all paperwork must be filled out completely and accurately.
Medical evidence was insufficient
It’s a good idea to add any medical proof you have. This can include hospital records, testimonies from coworkers, friends, relatives, and others who are familiar with your handicap, doctor reports, and information on all of the therapies you’ve had.
Medical care that isn’t consistent
It is critical that you adhere to all of your doctor’s directions. If you don’t, the Social Security Administration may claim that the injury became more significant as a result of this, or that the injury was never serious in the first place. They have the option of denying the claim due to “treatment non-compliance.” They could assume that if you had followed the treatment plan, you would be able to work.
The Social Security Administration is not cooperating with you
Whatever your feelings are about the procedure and its challenges, you must cooperate with the Social Security Administration. They have complete control, and if you refuse to give them access to your medical data or agree to a consultation exam, you may expect your claim to be denied. You must comply and adhere to all directions.
Your earnings are excessively high
You will not be rejected SSDI because of your high salary. This is not a need-based program; instead, it is dependent on your contribution. It makes no difference what your income is if you have obtained the required labor credits. SSI (Supplemental Security Income), on the other hand, requires that the applicant’s family income and assets be below a particular threshold.
Not getting legal assistance
Most of the reasons why a person’s SSDI benefits are refused might have been avoided if a legal practitioner had been involved in the application process. Call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation if you’re ready to get started right away.
