Far too many people assume that their initial application for social security disability benefits was denied simply because they do not qualify for disability payments. However, it is important to understand that two out of three disability claims are initially rejected and denied for a variety of reasons other than eligibility.
Many people have their disability claim rejected simply because they do not follow the direction on the application process – they leave out important information or do not complete the application correctly. Others have their disability claim rejected because they do not thoroughly prove that they suffer from a disability or that their disability prevents them from working. Many people who are rejected are indeed disabled and can’t work, but do not provide the medical history and medical records proving these two facts.
Some people have their disability applications denied for valid reasons. These reasons include the fact that your disability was caused by a substance abuse issue, the fact that you have a criminal past, the fact that your disability is a short-term issue, or the fact that you earn too much income to qualify.
