Common Reasons for SSDI and SSI Denials

Receiving a denial notice can be disheartening, but it’s crucial to remember that more than 60% of initial claims are denied. Common reasons for SSDI and SSI denials include:

  • Insufficient medical evidence to support your disability claim.
  • Errors or inaccuracies in your application.
  • Failure to meet the requirements of the Social Security Administration (SSA).
  • Incomplete or improperly filled out forms.
  • Filing for disability while working.
  • Failure to provide sufficient medical evidence.
  • Failure to submit a claim in a timely manner.
  • Failure to include all required documentation.

Even minute details like writing out a date wrong can lead to a denial of your SSDI or SSI claim. That is why we always recommend having an experienced disability lawyer assist with applications. However, if you have already submitted an application on your own and received an SSDI or SSI denial, our experienced lawyers can help. We are well-versed in identifying the specific reasons for your denial, ensuring that we address these issues comprehensively during the appeals process.

How Long Do You Have to File an Appeal?

Upon receiving a denial, it’s essential to act promptly. The SSA typically provides a 60-day window to file an appeal and failure to meet that deadline could result in losing the ability to appeal. While you have time to file the appeal, we recommend contacting an SSDI and SSI denial lawyer as soon as possible to initiate the process.

What Is the Appeals Process for SSDI and SSI Denials?

The appeals process for SSDI and SSI denials consists of several stages. These stages can be complex and time-consuming, which is why you want a lawyer on your side. Our legal team will work closely with you through the required SSA disability benefits denial process that includes:

  • Request for Reconsideration: We’ll request that the SSA reviews your case again, addressing any issues or errors that led to your initial denial.
  • Administrative Law Judge Hearing: If your request for reconsideration is denied, we can represent you in front of an administrative law judge. Our goal is to present a strong case to demonstrate your eligibility for benefits.
  • Appeals Council: If necessary, we’ll continue to advocate for your rights by pursuing appeals at higher levels, including the Appeals Council.
  • Federal Court: This option is a last resort and can be costly but may result in a favorable decision if other attempts at appeal have been unsuccessful.

The SSDI and SSI denial lawyers at Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison Law Firm have experience at all levels of the Administration’s disability benefits appeals process from Reconsideration through Appeals Council. Our dedicated legal team can help you secure the benefits that you are entitled to.
