There Are Many Reasons Why a Social Security Disability Claim Could Be Denied
HIGH INCOME: You may not be eligible for benefits if your income is too high.
SHORT-TERM DISABILITY: Your disability must be expected to last (or have already) lasted for at least one year in order to qualify for benefits.
YOU ARE NOT AVAILABLE: Please be sure to notify the Social Security Office if you change your contact information, such as your phone number or address.
YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE VALUABLE INFORMATION: The SSD Office is very strict about their requirements and may ask you for very specific information. It is very important to provide them with the information they request in order to have your claim or appeal processed correctly.
YOUR DISABILITY IS BASED UPON DRUG ADDICTION: You do not qualify for SSD benefits if you are addicted to drugs.
YOU HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME: If you have a warrant issued for your arrest, violate parole, or if you are convicted of a crime, you will not be paid SSD benefits.
PROVIDING FALSE INFORMATION: It is extremely important that you provide truthful information to the SSD office. If you are found to have provided false information, you could be charged with fraud.
