MY SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS WERE DENIED - WHAT CAN I DO?

Call Harbison & Kavanaugh for a Richmond SSD Lawyer

At Harbison & Kavanagh, we understand how devastating it can be to receive a notification that your Social Security disability (SSD) benefits have been denied. If you recently found out that your claim has been denied, please contact our SSD attorneys in Richmond immediately to discuss your case. Because of the complex nature of Social Security, understanding why your claim was denied can be difficult without the aid of experienced representation.

Why Was My Claim Denied?

There are a variety of reasons that can lead to your claim or benefits being denied. Often, when you try and contact the Social Security Administration (SSA), it can take days, even weeks, to get a response as to why your application was denied.

  • The most common reasons for your claim being denied include:
  • Insufficient medical evidence
  • Outdated medical records
  • Incorrectly filled claim or application

Denials are not uncommon, as many Social Security Disability claims are initially denied. There have been cases in which applications are simply misplaced or not properly filed. Your attorney can look into having your benefits retroactively reinstated under certain conditions.
