Many disability benefit applications are rejected initially and applicants are forced to appeal these decisions. The most common reason for a denied application is that the medical records and other evidence supplied is insufficient to convince the SSA that your case for a benefit is justified.
Few conditions impact your ability to work than eye problems. While many people dealing with visual disorders believe that you have to be totally blind in order to qualify for disability benefits, the truth is any significant degree of vision loss can affect your ability to work and make you eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

The Social Security Administration recently announced that it will be reopening its Social Security offices to the public on April 7, 2022. This is the first time the SSA has allowed in-person office appointments since COVID first hit the US in Spring 2020. The Social Security Administration will continue to have appointments and hearings virtually in addition to the new in-person availabilities.
If a disability has made it difficult to work, hiring a Social Security disability (SSD) lawyer can help you receive the financial assistance that you deserve. With the Social Security Administration (SSA) denying a vast majority of claims, working with an SSD attorney can help you gather and organize the physical medical evidence you need to get a claim approved. An SSD lawyer may provide several different types of legal support that include ensuring you file a claim on time, as well as submit convincing medical evidence.
If the Social Security Administration (SSA) denied your claim for disability benefits, does that mean you cannot file a disability appeal? The answer is you have the right to file a Social Security disability appeal. However, before you file an appeal for reconsideration, you should first understand why the SSA denied you disability benefits.
Why Was My Social Security Disability Claim Denied?
The SSA can deny your disability claim for one or more reasons. Here are 3 reasons why you may be denied disability benefits:
If you have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder you are not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year.
Those affected experience major disruptions to both work and life because of its limitations. This doesn’t mean you have to suffer financially from an anxiety disorder as you may be eligible for disability benefits which are funded by the Social Security Administration.
If you suffer from a hidden disability, you might qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits. An invisible disability is difficult to notice, and it can be devastating to the person suffering from the symptoms.
Some estimates claim as many as 10 percent of Americans suffer from an invisible disability. Although some Americans that live with a hidden disability can manage their symptoms, most cases of invisible disabilities make victims struggle with normal daily activities.
The Social Security disability application process requires you to complete two major tasks. First, you must submit a fully completed disability application that contains 100 percent accurate information. Failing to complete each section with accurate information means your claim will not get past the first phase of the review process.
If your disability application was denied there are several levels of the appeals process for disability benefits that may help to get your claim approved. Firstly, you can file a Request for Reconsideration and a special team will be appointed to review your claim again none of whom will have been involved in the decision of your initial application.
Anyone who is unable to work for at least 12 months, meets the criteria of a Blue Book listing, and meets the non-medical requirements set forth by the Social Security Administration (SSA) is eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits. You will need to provide supporting evidence and documentation to show that you meet these criteria, and you will also need to provide hard medical evidence that backs up your claim. Monthly disability benefits can help you cover medical care and basic living expenses.
