Social Security Disability: The Basics

Distributed by the Social Security Administration (SSA), SSD benefits are intended to help disabled workers and their families manage their lives in the event of an untimely injury or illness. In order to qualify for benefits, you must have a condition that prevents you from earning a certain monthly income as a full-time worker. However, this does not mean you can start receiving benefits immediately following an injury. Your disability must have lasted (or is expected to last) for at least 12 continuous months or will likely result in death.

Qualifying Conditions

As an adult seeking SSD benefits, you may qualify if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Musculoskeletal problems, such as back fractures and other joint dysfunctions
  • Sensory and speech issues, such as vision and hearing loss
  • Respiratory illnesses, such as asthma and cystic fibrosis
  • Breathing issues, such as COPD
  • Cardiovascular conditions, such as chronic heart failure or coronary artery disease
  • Digestive tract problems, such as liver disease and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and epilepsy
  • Blood disorders, such as sickle cell disease or hemophilia
  • Mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, or autism
  • Immune system disorders, such as HIV/AIDS, lupus, and kidney disease

How an SSD Attorney Can Help

Involving an attorney during the SSD application process may prevent major headaches down the road. With the help of skilled legal counsel, you can feel confident knowing you have compiled the necessary information as well as properly filled out your application. A Social Security Disability can also represent you in the event that your claim is denied.

Appealing a Denied Claim

It is not uncommon for someone’s SSD claim to be denied after their first application. Throughout his experience in SSD claims, our attorney has learned the SSA commonly denies benefits for the following reasons:

  • You do not have substantial proof that your disability will last for 12 or more months.
  • They do not consider your impairment to be severe.
  • They believe you can perform at least some type of work.

When you schedule a meeting with us, we can work with you to build a stronger claim. Some possible tactics that could improve your claim include:

  • Pursuing diagnostic treatment for your condition
  • Attending follow-up doctor visits
  • Sharing all concerns and details of your condition with your doctor
  • Developing evidence from other resources such as friends, family, and employers
