Socail Security- Why was I denied?

Posted by attorney David Henson

When evaluating applications, Social Security uses a complex, five-step process to determine if you are qualified for disability benefits. Social Security will ask questions about your disability and your ability to work, such as: • Are you working? • Do you have appropriate medical records to document your impairment? • Is your medical condition considered disabling? • Do you have the ability to do the work that you've done in the past? • Can you perform any other work? If Social Security thinks that you don't meet these federal disability guidelines, you'll be denied benefits.
