I applied for Social Security Disability Benefits while working and my claim has been denied, why?
The most basic eligibility requirement to receive Social Security Disability benefits is the inability to engage in substantial gainful activity that has lasted or is expected to last for twelve months. In other words, you can’t be working. How will the Social Security Administration know? They will look at your earning records. Every employer takes out Social Security tax from your paychecks and therefore, Social Security is going to know how much you have earned. If an Examiner finds that you have been working, it is very easy for them to deny your Social Security Disability claim.
