Reasons of a Long Term Disability Denial
The paperwork associated with a long-term disability claim is complicated, and there are many possible pitfalls for an application through no fault of the applicant. Therefore, many claims will initially be denied, making it necessary to appeal the decision. Reasons for denial may include the following:
- Incorrect information on form
- Failing to complete paperwork
- Failure to provide all necessary supporting documentation
The rejection of your claim may be as simple as filing for the wrong type of long term disability claim. SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) pays income to an individual with money they have already invested into social security in their taxes. SSI (Supplemental Security Income) pays for disability claims with general tax revenue. Working closely with an attorney can help you to ensure that any mistakes are corrected upon appeal.
