What to Do When You Are Denied Disability
Every year, millions of people attempt to file for disability each year. However, only 30 percent of people are approved for disability the first time that they apply for it. Many people are denied disability because they do not have enough medical evidence to support their claim. You have to be able to prove that your disability stops you from doing meaningful work.
Some people are denied disability because they make too much money. If you make more than a $1,000 per month, then it is likely that you will be denied disability. The Social Security Administration will not give benefits to people unless they are unable to work due to their disability.
If you do not follow the treatment plan that your doctor recommends, then your disability claim may be denied. However, there are circumstances that may prevent you from following the treatment, then you may still be approved. Not being able to afford the prescribed treatment is an example of something that can stop you from following the treatment.
Furthermore, if you do not cooperate with the Social Security Office, then your claim will likely be denied. This includes things such as not submitting the required documentation or not showing up for your scheduled medical exams. Keep in mind that you can file an appeal if you are denied disability benefits.
You must act quickly because you only have 60 days to file an appeal. It is important for you to take note of the reason that you are denied. If you do not correct the initial problem, then your application will likely be denied.
