Social Security Application Mistakes

Over two million people apply for Social Security benefits annually, but up to 70% of those applications are rejected by the Social Security Administration. Some of the most common mistakes occur because people try too hard to gain their SSDI eligibility. Oftentimes, applicants do not follow the prescribed course of treatment in the hope that they will seem more “disabled” when the Social Security inspector pays a visit. This can cause an application to be rejected immediately. Other common mistakes include:

  • Working while applying for benefits
  • Applying for disability benefits before being diagnosed with a disability or disabling condition
  • Not having enough evidence to prove disability

All of these mistakes can be avoided with the counsel of an experienced Social Security attorney.
