Common SSD Application Mistakes

Get the Facts from a Skilled Attorney

In order to successfully file a Social Security Disability claim, the Social Security Administration requires meticulous and accurate details about your injury or illness, work history and other details about your day-to-day life. If you fail to include seemingly small details - such as a full list of every doctor who treated you or list of medications you were prescribed - your claim will be rejected.

The following are the most common application mistakes that result in a rejected Social Security Disability claim in Pennsylvania:

  • Medical details are left out, such as appointments, diagnoses, medications and a list of physicians who treated your condition.
  • Your work history is incomplete. To file a successful SSD application, a complete work history is mandatory.
  • Financial errors, such as W-2 tax forms and income amounts that do not match.
  • Legal inaccuracies, such as incorrect employer information, identification numbers, code numbers or dates.
  • Other errors that may occur when your application isn't proofread before submission.
