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.
Eligibility for Social Security disability benefits depends on several factors. The Social Security Administration (SSA) reviews:
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.
