What if Your Social Security Application is Denied?What if Your Social Security Application is Denied?

If you have been denied, do not get discouraged. Applications are denied for many reasons including missing information, lack of proof of disability, questionable medical information, missed deadlines, supplemental income and other factors. Almost two-thirds of all applicants are denied initially. There are opportunities to have the denial reversed on appeal.

•The claim can be “reconsidered”; reviewed by a different decision maker.
•If reconsideration is denied, you can request a hearing before a judge who has the power to overturn the denial.
•If the judge does not overturn the denial, you can request a review by the Social Security Administration Appeals Council.
•Finally, if the Appeals Council does not approve your disability benefits, you can file an appeal with the U. S. Federal District Court.
