Denied SSD Benefits
After being denied
Social Security disability benefits, you may think there's nothing left you can do to receive
financial aid for your
physical impairment or disability. This is not always true, since you may be able to obtain
a reversal of the determination on your claim by
filing an appeal. There are legitimate reasons for a claim to be denied, however, so be
sure to learn more about SSD eligibility and discuss your situation with
a Las Vegas Social Security disability attorney before filing a claim
or making an appeal.
Why was my disability claim denied?
Eligibility for Social Security disability benefits depends on several
factors. The Social Security Administration (SSA) reviews:
- Your current work status, the severity of your medical condition
- Whether or not your condition is on the List of Impairments
- Whether or not you can do the work you did before
- Whether or not you can do any other type of work
If you do not meet the requirements laid out by the SSA, your claim will
be denied. On the other hand, the SSA has been known to deny valid claims,
as well. If they believe that your temporary disability will last for
less than 12 months, they may deny your claim. You could still fight such
a denial by proving that your physical impairment could very well limit
your ability to work for more than one year. Your best chance at obtaining
benefits in any such situation is to retain a skilled SSD lawyer.
