It is an unfortunate fact that the majority of initial applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied. Many people try to fight the process themselves, only to learn that the cards are stacked against them. The hard work and level of detail necessary to gather the information and submit it properly is so frustrating that many people eventually give up.
