People who have a disability may qualify for Social Security in Missouri. However, it is estimated that 60 to 70 percent of Social Security disability claims are denied. Many people have to fight for years before they are able to get Social Security disability. There are several reasons that your Social Security claim may get denied.

Lack of Medical Evidence

Many people will submit a claim without enough medical evidence. If there is not enough evidence, then your claim will be denied. The more medical evidence that you submit, the more likely you will be to get approved. There is no such thing as submitting too much evidence.

The Claims Were Not Filled Out Properly

The forms have to be filled out properly in order for you to get approved for Social Security. You will also have to provide detailed responses to all of the answers that the application asks.

You Make Too Much Money

You are allowed to work if you have disability. However, if you make too much money, then your claim will be denied. The Social Security Administration believes that if you are able to work enough to make a certain amount of money, then you are not disabled.

You do not Follow the Treatment Plan

You will have to follow the doctor’s treatment plan. If you don’t, then your claim will likely be denied. However, there are some acceptable reasons for not following the treatment. For example, if you have a mental illness that makes it difficult for you to comply with the treatment, then you may still be approved. If you cannot comply with the treatment due to a lack of funds, then you may also be approved.
