SSD Denial Rates

Our Reno Social Security Disability Attorney Can Help

The following are recent averages both nationwide and in the state of Nevada for Social Security Disability and supplemental security income claim denials. They represent denials at the initial application process and at reconsideration:

  • Nationwide: at application-64%; at reconsideration-86.2%
  • Nevada: at application-57.3%; at reconsideration-77.4%

In our experience, we have found that those individuals who win their cases early in the process (in Nevada, that represents 32.4% of claims filed) were able to present to the Social Security Administration complete evidence showing that they met the SSA listing of impairments or were disabled under GRID rules. That is why it is so imperative to have a representative by your side as early in the process as possible. If you have submitted an incomplete file to the SSA, your chances of winning at the early stages of the process will be significantly lowered.

While the numbers may look somewhat bleak, every case is different, and those that are committed to winning their case, stand a higher chance of being awarded the benefits that are rightfully theirs by enlisting the help provided by knowledgeable representation. We know the laws and are here to fight for you.

If your claim has been denied, you may still have options. Request a case evaluation with us at Disability Action Advocates today.
