Why are Social Security Claims Frequently Denied?
In 2010, approximately two-thirds of Social Security Disability claims were denied. For these individuals, it is extremely frustrating to be denied when they are suffering from a disability that interferes with their ability to work. The decisions made by the Social Security Administration (SSA) are difficult to understand, and sadly, the claims are often denied despite the clear legitimacy of the claim.
If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits, do not give up. Too many people do not realize that they have the option to appeal a denial.

Completing Your Claim
Many claims are denied simply because the paperwork is incomplete or is not completed correctly. It is essential to provide documentation of disability from a legitimate source. You must adhere to deadlines and make sure that your claim is legitimate. An attorney can help you file a complete and correct initial claim.
Even if all the information is correct and qualifies you for benefits, the SSA sometimes has an interest in denying claims in order to reduce agency expenditures and limit the cost to taxpayers. Typically, with sound legal representation and an exhibited desire to repeatedly appeal these baseless denials, the likelihood of gaining benefits improves. There are time limits regarding when you can appeal, so it is important that you consult with an attorney.
If you are suffering from a disability, you may qualify for SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) or SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Contact the Social Security Disability claims attorneys of Hankey Law Office, at (800) 520-3633 to learn more about taking action.
