Why was my disability benefits petition denied?

Indeed, petitioning for Social Security disability benefits can be a long and arduous process.  It is well chronicled that more than half of all initial petitions are denied. Making matters worse, applicants with documented injuries and debilitating conditions may be initially denied. Even more troubling, the backlog of reconsideration cases continues to grow.  

Determining eligibility for SSDI

California residents who are disabled and unable to work may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. It may also be possible for a disabled person to apply for Supplemental Security Income to help pay bills and other living expenses. Individuals must present sufficient evidence of their disability and their inability to work to receive benefits. Evidence generally includes a diagnosis from a doctor as well as documentation of signs or symptoms of a disability.
