Common Application Mistakes

Some of the common reasons a disability application is denied are:
1. a lack of medical treatment,
2. a lack of records,
3. Mistakes or omissions on the application.

Often getting all medical records or submitting missing records will solve this problem. If you have sought treatment or had ongoing treatment since submitting the original application this needs to be reflected in the records. Sometimes the forms and application have been completed inaccurately or areas were left blank and not filled out when you applied. Any of these reasons can (and likely will in today’s SSA environment) cause the claim to be denied. Sometimes SSD applicants have a hard time finding treatment and have a lack of medical records. It is important that you try (and document all attempts you make) to find treatment where ever you can.
