There are many reasons for the Social Security Administration to deny your claim for disability benefits. These are just a few common reasons for denials:

  • Your disability is due to drug or alcohol addiction. If your condition would likely improve if you stopped using drugs or alcohol, the Social Security Administration will likely deny your claim. 
  • Your condition is not expected to last long enough. If your condition is not expected to last for 12 or more months, the Social Security Administration will deny your claim.
  • Your condition is not severe. If your condition does not interfere with your ability to perform work-like functions, your claim will be denied.
  • You did not provide enough medical documentation to support the severity of your disability. The Social Security Administration cannot approve your claim if you do not have medical evidence from medical providers to substantiate your symptoms. 
  • You did not follow your doctor’s recommendations. If you did not follow thru with recommended medical treatment, the Social Security Administration will deny your claim.
