Perhaps there is nothing more frustrating than receiving a letter in the mail saying you were denied Social Security disability in Rhode Island. You know that you are unable to work, and you struggle knowing that your finances are limited because of your disability. Fortunately, a denial for SSDI in Rhode Island is not the end of the road.

There are a number of reasons why you may have been denied. Understanding why you were denied SSDI is the first step toward knowing how to file an appeal that gets approved. Here are a few of the most common reasons people are denied Rhode Island SSDI:

  • Not meeting all of the requirements of the listing. The listings for disabilities can be very complex. There are many qualifications that your disability must meet in order to receive SSDI in Rhode Island. If you were denied, it is a good idea to go back through the listing to ensure that you meet all of the standards set in place by the Social Security Administration.
     
  • Not fully documenting all of the disability. The majority of disabilities are not very straightforward. To be approved, you must document all aspects of your disability, including any physical and mental limitations you have with your medical condition. Without documenting both mental and physical limitations, you risk the person reviewing your application thinking that you may still be able to perform other aspects of your job in a limited fashion, which may disqualify you from SSDI.
     
  • Not submitting enough medical evidence. The person looking through your application must see medical evidence that shows why you are no longer able to work. This includes imaging results, test results, and more. If you were denied and you meet all of the listing requirements, you may need to submit more medical evidence to show your disability to the person looking through your application.
     

Filing an application for SSDI in Rhode Island can be very difficult. If you were denied, it is a good idea to seek help with the appeal process. At Keefe Disability Law, we understand how difficult it is to receive a denial. With help from a Rhode Island Social Security attorney, you can be confident that you maximize your opportunity to receive the SSDI you need in your appeal.
