What is a Social Security Disability SSI Durational Denial?
To understand a durational denial you have to understand the Social Security definition of disability. Social Security’s definition of disability requires an individual to have a severe medically determinable physical or mental impairment that is has prevented them from performing substantial work activity for twelve months or is expected to prevent them from performing substantial work activity for twelve months (SGA earnings limit).
So what is a durational denial? If Social Security determines that an individual’s impairment is likely to improve so as to permit substantial gainful work activity within twelve months, their disability claim will be denied with a durational denial. In order to be approved for disability, applicants must meet the twelve-month duration requirement.
