Get Help With Your Social Security Disability Claim Today: Call Crumley Roberts.
If you are unable to work because of a disability, the last thing you want to do is take on the Social Security Administration (SSA) for the benefits you deserve. You should be focusing on getting the treatment you need and making ends meet. At Crumley Roberts, we’re here to fight for your benefits.
Our Social Security Disability lawyers have years of experience handling Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income claims, and we can help you, too. It’s our first priority to get you the benefits you’ve earned, and we won’t hesitate to stand up for you.
Getting Your Disability Benefits
There are a number of medical conditions that the SSA considers disabling. However, to be approved for disability benefits, you must not only have an impairment the SSA considers disabling, but you must also be able to pass the SSA’s stringent guidelines for qualifying.
The SSA considers a number of factors when evaluating an application or appeal for SSD benefits. Your income, work history, age, and ability to do other work also are factors. Providing proper and thorough documentation of all of these factors can be overwhelming—but we can help.
3 Common Reasons Applications for Social Security Disability Benefits are Denied
Three common reasons why disability benefits are denied include:
- Duration of Your Condition
To get SSD benefits, you must suffer from a disability expected to last at least one year or result in death.
- Failure to Follow Prescribed Treatment
Your SSD claim must prove that you are unable to work despite your best efforts to treat your disabling condition. If you fail to follow your doctor’s orders or prescribed therapy, the SSA may deny your disability claim.
- Income and Resources
Your monthly income must fall below the SSA’s limits—referred to as substantial gainful activity (SGA)—to qualify for SSD benefits.
More than half of all initial SSD claims are denied. Visit our Appealing Your SSD Claim page to find out more about how we can help build a strong appeal on your behalf—you may still be entitled to benefits.
