Social Security Disability: Two-Thirds of Applications Denied

by Staff Blogger | February 24th, 2017

At Ponce Law, we’re proud to help Nashville’s disabled residents get the Social Security Disability benefits they deserve, because we know those benefits can be the difference between making it financially and falling below the poverty line. But why do disabled folks in Nashville need help at all? If these benefits are so important, shouldn’t it be easy to secure them? Yes, it should, but that’s not the reality for thousands of disabled Americans.

The sad truth is two-thirds of all initial Social Security Disability applications are denied. The reason for these denials is often due to incomplete or missing information. In order to qualify for benefits, you must prove that you are unable to do any type of work due to your disability, not just your main profession. For instance, if you are able to perform even the simplest work tasks, you probably aren’t going to qualify for benefits. Proving that you are unable to work to that degree necessary can be difficult on your own. That’s why calling an experienced Nashville Social Security Disability attorney is so important. We know the system and how to secure benefits.

If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability benefits, call us immediately. We’ll review your application for free and help set you on a path to securing benefits. Those benefits are too important to your future for you to try and go it alone, so contact us today.
