When your social security disability claim has been denied, this can be for any number of reasons. If your application is not complete, social security will deny your application and you will have to file an appeal in order to have your case reviewed.
If social security doesn’t receive information from your treatment providers, they will treat your application as incomplete. If you missed a form, they will deny you your benefits. The process for applying for social security disability benefits is complex, and most people are denied benefits after their first application.
To appeal the decision if your application is denied, it’s important to contact us so that we can go over your entire case together. We understand the intricacies of the social security disability process and we will be able to guide you through the rest of the process.
If you’ve been denied because of a lack of treatment for your disabilities, now is the time to begin seeing providers for help with the disabilities you are dealing with. While you may feel that it is futile to go for treatment for disabilities that never seem to get better, you must have a medical record that shows you are in treatment for the disabilities you are claiming are preventing you from working.
When you seek treatment, you create a medical record that can be reviewed by social security. With medical proof in hand that you are not able to work, social security can then approve your claim.
If you need to file an appeal, and you aren’t sure what to do next, give our office a call so that we can talk about your next step in the process.
