Do you qualify for Social Security disability benefits?
You know you can’t work, but that alone won’t get you the Social Security disability benefits you need. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is a large governmental agency that uses a complex legal system to decide who deserves disability benefits. To win disability benefits, you must fit within the definition of “disabled” under SSA’s guidelines.
That’s the hardest part: legally proving you’re “disabled.”
How do I know if I’m disabled?
Under Social Security’s rules, you’re “disabled” if a medical condition or injury is expected to prevent you from being able to work for at least 12 months. This can be due to a physical condition, a mental condition, or a combination of problems.
In general, Social Security considers you disabled if:
- You cannot do work that you did before;
- You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.
To decide whether or not you’re disabled, Social Security uses a complex process. Nash Disability Law knows what you need to keep in mind while you’re going through the disability process. We are here to help you at any stage of your claim.
