Compassionate Oklahoma Disability Denial Attorneys
have you been denied long-term disability benefits?
Over 60% of new Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims receive an initial denial from the Social Security Administration (SSA). Only a few of these first-round rejections are eventually overturned on appeal.
Common Reasons for SSDI Denial
- The disability claim may appear to be fraudulent as filed
- There is insufficient medical evidence to support the claim
- There are significant errors in the claim application itself
- The claim does not meet the criteria for disability benefits
Most automatic denials fall into three categories: criminal, financial, or medical. If the disability stems from drug or alcohol abuse—or is linked to a criminal conviction—no financial consideration is available. In other cases, claimants who earn too much money or will be disabled less than a year will not qualify. The SSA also denies claimants who cannot supply treatment records, ignored doctor’s orders, or did not follow treatment.
