    Common Reasons for SSDI Claim Denials

    One of the most common reasons people are denied Social Security disability insurance is because their medical condition is not considered severe enough. In order to qualify for benefits, your condition must be expected to last at least one year or result in death. Another reason people are often denied is because they have not provided enough medical evidence to support their claim. To receive benefits, you must be able to show that your condition prevents you from working and that it is expected to last for at least a year. If you are denied Social Security disability insurance, you have the right to appeal the decision. The appeals process can be complex, so it is important to seek help from an experienced attorney.

    Taking on SSDI claim denials on your own can be an uphill battle. The Social Security Administration (SSA) denies the majority of claims that are filed, and the process for appealing a denial can be long and complicated.

    An experienced SSDI lawyer from Gustad Law Group can help increase your chances of success by:

    1. Helping you navigate the complex SSDI application and appeals process
    2. Gathering and submitting evidence to support your claim
    3. Representing you at hearings before an administrative law judge
    4. Negotiating with the SSA on your behalf

    Hiring an SSDI lawyer does not guarantee that your claim will be approved, but it can give you a much better chance of success.
