There are many possible reasons why your SSD application could be denied, and when you have a good understanding of what those reasons are, you can be much more prepared for all possible outcomes. That is why, in our last blog, our disability attorney in Louisville went over a couple of common reasons for denied SSD benefits. The following is a list of a couple more common reasons for denied SSD benefits:

#3. You fail to cooperate.

The SSA has to have your medical records in order to grant you SSD benefits, and if you refuse to give them access to your records, your application. will most likely be denied. You will also be required to attend a consultative examination (CE), so that an SSA doctor can examine you. If you do not show up to your CE, your application will most likely be denied. If there is a legitimate reason why you can’t make it to your CE, you can always talk to your claim examiner about it so that your CE can be scheduled at a more convenient time.

#4. The SSA can’t get ahold of you.

If you have designated your attorney to handle your paperwork for you, you can probably just keep in contact with your attorney. However, if you are handling your paperwork on your own, the SSA has to be able to get ahold of you to discuss your application, and if they can’t, your application will most likely be denied.
