SSD Application Mistakes Lead to Denials

by Staff Blogger | November 18th, 2016

In Tennessee, we take care of our own. From lifelong friends to family ties, standing with those we love is simply a way of life. American lawmakers held true to the same philosophy when they instituted the Social Security Act and later ratified it to include the disabled. They believed that our disabled Americans who can no longer work should be able to survive financially, so they set up a system for them to apply for benefits. Unfortunately, getting those benefits over the years has become harder and harder.

More than two-thirds of all Social Security Disability applications are initially denied. That’s thousands of disabled Americans every year left not knowing how they’re going to make ends meet. Why are they denied? Often it’s simple mistakes or omissions on their application that have nothing to do with their eligibility. Unfortunately, knowing what’s incorrect or missing can be difficult unless you know the system extremely well.

That’s why if you’ve been denied Social Security Disability, you should consult with an attorney before making your appeal. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney can evaluate your application, discover the reasons it was denied, and make a plan for securing benefits in the appeal.
