I was diagnosed with a psychological disability, but my claim was rejected. Why?

There are several reasons for any claim to be rejected by the Social Security Administration, from paperwork errors to insufficient evidence of a disability. However, psychological disability claims are more often challenged by the Social Security Administration due to the difficulty of proving that the disability is real and will last long enough to allow a person to qualify for benefits. Although it’s hard to say exactly why your claim was rejected, a legal advisor can evaluate your situation and claim, potentially helping you to better organize and present evidence for an appeal or claim.
