What can I do if I’ve been denied disability in Missouri?

Over two million people in the United States apply for disability each year, and most of these applicants are initially denied benefits.

Do not be discouraged.  Getting approved on the initial application level is rare; however, at the hearing level and with good representation, the odds are much greater. This is where having a lawyer can be very helpful.

Deciding Factors in a Claim

Generally, the Social Security Administration (SSA) determines whether or not a claimant will receive benefits based on their physical and/or mental condition, work history, and evidence presented.

First, an individual must have a condition that will likely result in death, or has lasted, or is expected to last, for 12 months or longer.

Second, to obtain full SSDI as opposed to only SSI, you must have worked and paid taxes for 20 out of the last 40 quarters or 5 of the last 10 years.

Third, evidentiary support should be included in a claimant’s file.

Not meeting any one of these requirements will result in a denial.
