Been Denied Social Security Disability Benefits? Donâ€™t Make These Mistakes!
Most people who apply for Social Security disability benefits are initially denied. Unless you have a clear-cut physical impairment causing permanent disability you should probably expect to be denied. The reason for this is pretty simple. The Social Security Administration publishes a list of medical conditions that they provide to their examiners. If your disabling condition does not fit the requirement in this list then you will most likely receive a denial letter. The other common cause for denial for even those who should qualify for benefits is lack of medical proof. In this case your attending physicians may not have complied with requests by the SSA for your medical records or poorly documented your visits. No matter the reason your application is denied, the bottom line is that you should not consider the matter settled and make the following mistakes some other people have done.
