Why do mental or psychological disability claims get denied for social security disability benefits?

Why Do Mental Or Psychological Disability Claims Get Denied For Social Security Disability Benefits?

It is observe that social security disability claims mostly get denied or it is very difficult to get a social security disability claim approves on the basis of some mental impairment as compared to any physical injury. This true for several reasons listed below:

  • A major obstacle is the poor notes being kept by many mental health treatment specialists.  The doctor is required to write the synopsis of the notes and send it to social security judge. The poor detail will not make it of any use.
  • Often the claimants do not have any record of the treatment they have been receiving. This holds true for illnesses such as depression in which the claimant’s doctor has prescribed an anti-depression medicine and the claimant had not been consulting and qualified psychologist. This means that the claimant will have no substantial mental treatment records to present for their claim.
  • Sometimes it happens that the claimant had consulted a psychiatrist but had not been taking the medicines may be because he cannot afford it. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration is not usually concerned with whether or not a claimant can afford their medication, but, simply, whether or not they take their medication. The law does not accept a non medical excuse for failing to take medicine.
