Understanding the Requirements for Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability benefits are not available to people with partial disability or short-term health concerns. To qualify for benefits, you must meet the government's definition of disabled, as well as fit the earnings profile based on your work history. For people who have never applied for benefits, the process can be confusing. If you are unable to work and need help determining if you fit the requirements for Social Security Disability, our lawyers at Garson Johnson LLC can help. Call 216-696-9330, toll free at 800-747-9330, or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation at our offices in Cleveland.
Social Security Disability Requirements - Earnings
Our lawyers can quickly determine if your work history makes you eligible for disability benefits. Based on your age, work history and the time you became disabled, you might need anywhere from 1.5 to 9.5 years of work experience. For most workers, the requirement is that you must have worked for five years out of the previous 10 before your disability began. For younger workers, the duration of work required is less. We will explain how the rules apply to your specific situation.
Medical Conditions That Qualify for Social Security Disability
The Social Security Administration uses a five-step process to determine if you are disabled. We will help you gather and present evidence regarding this process, including:
Providing Acceptable Proof of Disability
Your disability is obvious to you. The reduced function and the pain you are likely going through can make applying for benefits a difficult experience. Just because you know you can no longer do your job does not mean the government will believe you. Our experienced attorneys can help you gather and present the proper evidence to demonstrate why you should receive SSD benefits.
