SSD Claim Denial Lawyers throughout California, Nevada and the West

All disability insurance providers want to protect their bottom lines. They will fight to retain their revenue by rejecting your claim. The federal government is no exception. Two of the most common ways that the Social Security Administration (SSA) will deny an SSD claim are:
  • To reject the application based on incompleteness or procedural errors; and,
  • To deny that you are disabled.
If you have not yet filed for disability, working with one of our lawyers will give you the best chance possible at success. If you have already filed and your claim was denied, our attorneys will fight back to prove your disability and win the benefits you deserve. Get started today by scheduling a consultation through our offices in Oakland or Sacramento.

Common Reasons Why Social Security Disability Claims are Denied

In the disability claims process, it is important to remember that the SSA is looking out for the government’s interests – not yours. As a result, if there is any possible flaw in your application – no matter how small – it is going to be denied. Our SSD lawyers in Oakland and Sacramento frequently represent clients in appealing claim denials based upon:
  • Incomplete Disability Benefit Application form;
  • Incomplete Adult Disability Report;
  • Missing documentation (such as your birth certificate, immigration documents, or W-2);
  • Inadequate medical records to prove your disability;
  • Insufficient work history to qualify for SSD (most people over age 31 must have at least 10 years of employment);
  • Your physical or mental condition does not appear on the list of qualifying conditions, and is not severe enough to be considered a disability;
  • Your illness or injury does not prevent you from keeping your job or obtaining suitable alternative gainful employment;
  • The doctors employed by Disability Determination Services do not believe that you are disabled.
Regardless of the reason for your SSD claim being denied, our attorneys will provide a free assessment and help you understand your options. If your application can be corrected, or if your claim was denied improperly, we will file an appeal to fight for the benefits you deserve.
