Social Security Disability


Don't Let the SSA tell you "NO"! Over half of the Social Security denials end up getting paid.


Nationally, about 65 percent of all initial applications are denied, and the U.S. Social Security Administration will find every excuse to deny you benefits. Some of their favorite denials include the following:


  • "Your impairment is not severe."
  • "You can perform your past job."
  • "You can perform other jobs."
  • "Your impairment is not expected to last for more than a year."

Don't let their excuses make you give up what is rightfully yours. You are entitled to these benefits.
