Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is a long, confusing and stressful process. In fact, research shows that 70% of all claimants who file for disability benefits are initially denied. But if this happens to you, do not give up. Contact an experienced disability attorney for help in applying for disability, or appealing a denial. Even people who deserve disability benefits often have to fight before those benefits are granted. In fact, thousands of people who were once denied are now receiving their disability benefits after allowing Disability Attorneys of Michigan to help.

There are a number of factors that could cause your claim for disability benefits to be denied. Below is one reason…

Lack of Medical Treatment is the #1 reason why SSD claims are denied.

If a claimant is not seeking regular medical treatment for their physical or mental impairment, the lack of medical records to support their claim can result in their claim being denied. Making sure that you receive continued medical treatment from licensed medical providers is essential in any Social Security Disability claim.

Many ask the question, “What if I can’t afford to seek medical attention?”

If you are unable to afford the medical treatment you need, look into applying for Medicaid and/or research the Affordable Care Act.
