Why Claims Get Denied
There can be many reasons why the Social Security Administration (SSA) would reject a claim for SSDI or SSI. You could be rejected on the grounds, for example, that:
- Your disability is linked to a criminal conviction.
- Your disability is linked to drug or alcohol abuse.
- You make too much money.
- Your claim is not sufficiently verified by medical records.
- The SSA cannot get a hold of you.
- You will be disabled for less than one year.
The good news is that when you know why your claim was rejected, you have a better chance of knowing what to do differently when you challenge the decision.
