Enough work credits but denied social security? Here's a few things you might be doing wrong.

denied social security

Social Security Disability Insurance is a Social Security tax fund under which individuals with enough work credits and history qualify.

But if that bone fracture isn’t expected to last one year or impair your work ability, you may be denied. The only exception to one year rule is blindness. However, if the fracture is severe enough to last more than one year, you need to have medical evidence to back up your application.
