What is the most common reason why claims are denied?

A large number of claims are denied due to a lack of proof in individual medical records that shows the degree and consistency of the disabling medical conditions. It is important to remember that only your doctor’s medical charts and records, and not the doctor himself, will be present when Social Security makes its determination. As such, medical records must be extensive and detailed enough to overcome any medical inquiries conducted by Social Security.

Unfortunately, doctors are often not trained to routinely record such extensive information, so medical records frequently lack credible documentation or a showing of regular medical treatment.
