Who Should Appeal a Disability Denial?

A claim for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits may be denied for reasons that have nothing to do with whether the applicant deserves approval. In fact, the SSA routinely denies initial claims, often due to things like technical errors, or insufficient medical evidence. A denial in many cases need not be the end of the road. The Mike Morse Law Firm has helped many clients successfully appeal their disability denial.

Reasons for Denial of Social Security Disability Claims

Other common reasons for denial include:

  • the disability is not severe enough to prevent claimant from performing their job, or another type of work;
  • the disability is not expected to last a minimum of 12 months, or
  • failure to participate in good faith with medical treatment of the disability (For example, not taking medications as prescribed, missing doctor appointments, or not following the doctor’s orders).

Preparation for a Successful Appeal of Your Disability Denial

If your denial is for medical reasons, you have the right to appeal your claim for SSDI benefits within 60 days.
