What to do when your Social Security disability benefit gets denied?Written by Maricon Williams
We do not get everything we want. There are times when we fail and lose our hope. But when is time to give up? Or is there really a time meant for it?
Failures also invade administrative agencies and administrations. In fact, social security denies most of claims presented to them. Social Security turns down so many social security disability benefit claims. What is reason behind this? This is of course not intended to curtail benefits which rightfully belong to you.
There are several reasons why institution is doing this. First, if institution has no simple way to determine whether an individual is really disabled then they opt to deny claim. In cases where individual is in pain, there is no way to determine how much pain he or she is experiencing. However, if individual gets a little tricky and fraudulent problem sets in.
The second reason is that Social Security is focusing on how to make sure that claimants of Social Security benefits are really disabled. If it is already sure that they are disabled then, they see to it that they will be getting their Social Security benefits. This cautiousness is brought about by fact that a lot of claimants fake their disability to get benefits. Social security is not only there to give benefits but to shun fraud and deceit as well.
