Follow prescribed treatment to receive SSD benefits

One of the documents required to prove a disability to apply for social security disability benefits is verification from a medical professional. However, many may believe that just because the doctor has treated them once, it is enough evidence-this is not the case. One of common reasons SSD benefits are denied is because the individual failed to follow the doctor's the prescribed treatment plan, when that person had the ability to do so.

WHAT IS A TECHNICAL DENIAL OF SSD BENEFITS?

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be overwhelming. Understanding the ever-changing laws, getting the requisite paperwork together and then finally competing the application and submitting it seems like a huge relief for New York claimants. Unfortunately, many first-time applications are denied and this can be devastating for applicants. Rather than admit defeat, it is important to understand why the claim has been denied and how to move forward from there.
