Reasons why your disability benefits were denied

If you have recently filed for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and they were denied, it's safe to say that you are disappointed, frustrated and confused. There are quite a few reasons why your benefits claim might have been denied. Today, we will take a look at those reasons.

Explaining Supplemental Security Income

Adults and children who are disabled and have limited income resources can apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration (SSA). These benefits can also be paid out to seniors over the age of 65 who meet the financial requirements even if they are not disabled. This program is funded by revenue from general taxes, not Social Security tax.
