Possible Reasons for Your Claim Denial
There are several reasons your initial claim for workers compensation or SSD may have been denied. These reasons include:
- Your claim was made too late.
- Your employer is disputing that an accident ever occurred or was severe enough to cause serious injury.
- Your condition is not severe enough or will not last long enough.
- You refused to release your medical records.
- You did not follow treatment prescribed by your doctor.
While it is true that two-thirds of all social security disability claims are initially denied, this does not mean you are out of luck. The Missouri office of the Social Security Administration has a very basic set of criteria for approving or denying claims. Sometimes the individuals reviewing the claims don’t take the time to fully consider the details of each claim.
If your claim has been denied, you are entitled to appeal within 60 days of the denial notice.
