Claimants will be denied if SSA was not able to obtain enough medical evidence that proves the disabling condition has been diagnosed 'severe'.
One of the more common denial reasons used by SSA is that the severe medical condition is expected to improve over time with treatment.
Depending on a person's age and transferrable job skills, SSA will deny a claim if they determine that other work may be available.
SSA will deny an SSDI claim if the taxpayer does not have enough work credits, and will deny an SSI claim if the household income is too high.
Sadly, SSA denies claims at a high rate, especially in the beginning. There are many good arguments to raise on appeal, such as:
- SSA was not able to gather all of your medical records
- SSA is relying on the opinion of a medical consultant that has never seen you
- SSA did not fully review or understand all of your medical conditions
