If you applied for Social Security disability benefits (SSDI) and received a “technical denial,” you may be wondering what that means. SSDI claims are commonly rejected based on medical grounds, meaning that the Social Security Administration (SSA) did not feel that the claimed medical conditions were sufficient enough to warrant SSDI benefits. However, a technical denial occurs when the claimant is found ineligible for benefits even before the SSA reviews the medical proof. In order to help you understand why you might have received a technical denial, consult with the Chicago Social Security lawyer at The Comerford Law Office, LLC today.
When individuals come to us with a technical denial, we explain to them that there is one of three reasons that they could have been denied. They include:
Unfortunately, most technical denials are set in stone and cannot be reversed. For instance, if you have not contributed enough to SSDI through work credits, appealing the administration’s decision is not going to change that fact. However, if you feel that the SSA unfairly or wrongly evaluated your income, or if the denial was due to missed paperwork, missing information, or some other error, we may be able to build a case.
Though appealing a technical denial is not always easy, if you believe that you were wrongly denied your Social Security benefits, reach out to the team at The Comerford Law Office, LLC for a case evaluation, advice, and a legal strategy.
