If you have a health issue or an injury that prevents you from working in Mississippi, you may want to apply for Social Security Disability. The Social Security Administration has strict rules on who qualifies for these benefits. They are not as easy to get as other benefits from the SSA because of the nature of them where the SSA has to decide if you are truly disabled. However, there are a few reasons why your request for SSDI may be denied.

The Motley Fool explains that a common reason for SSDI denial is not providing the right documents. You must give the SSA everything it requests to substantiate your application. If you fail to do that, they will deny your benefits. Another common reason is that you make too much money. With any SS benefits, you cannot make over a certain amount of income or you will be denied. You also need to have a certain amount of work credits to qualify. If you do not have enough time spent working, then you cannot get them.

Another major issues that will get you denied is not filling out your application fully. Do not leave blank spaces. Do not forget to include information or sign the forms. Any omission could lead to a denial. Even technical errors, such as providing a copy of a document when the original is required can get your application thrown out. So, you really must be extra carefully to read all instructions and follow the precisely. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
