What Do I Do If My Social Security Case Is Denied

So you have filed for Social Security Disability and received a denial letter. What do you do now? The answer is to appeal. Most initial applications are denied by the Social Security Administration. However, the success rate upon appealing the initial denial is much higher. Therefore it is important to contact a law firm that specializes in Michigan Social Security Disability cases.

Getting denied does not mean you don’t have a successful case. Most denials occur because there was not enough medical documentation provided with the initial application to prove your case.

When you receive your denial letter, you should review it and understand the reasons for the denial. Denial letters will include a description of the medical conditions and the impairments the applicant alleges are causing the disability from employment. The denial letter will also state the medical records that were considered. Last, the denial letter will include the explanation for the denial.

Most denials include a technical discussion about your medical conditions. The discussion will highlight your symptoms and test results, whether your impairments meet the list requirements, whether you can do past work or do other work based on your age, education and experience, as well as a discussion about your residual functional capacity.
