What are Social Security Disability Benefits?
Social Security Disability Insurance is a program to give you income support. It provides cash to those who have a disability and can no longer work due to their disability. Benefits are based on past wages that are reported to Social Security.
Common Social Security Disability Injuries
Some of the more common Social Security Disabilities are back and neck injuries, respiratory or lung conditions, heart disease, mental health issues, autoimmune conditions, diabetes, cancer, and blindness or vision loss. Other disabilities are based on a case-by-case status.
Who Is Entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits?
Social Security Disability benefits are only available for those who meet the medical or mental criteria as prescribed by the Social Security Administration. In order to qualify, you must be unable to work due to their specific medical condition.
How to Qualify for Disability
In order to qualify for a disability, you must meet the specific criteria as set forth by the Social Security Administration. If you can prove that you are disabled via your medical records, you may qualify for a disability. Your attorney can help you prepare your submission records to see if you qualify.
How Does the Social Security Agency Determine If I Am Disabled?
Your determination will be based on work history, how long your disability is expected to last, and other contributing factors. You’ll also be required to prove your disability with your medical records.
The review will determine if you’re eligible for other training, how long your condition is anticipated to last, and other contributing factors to your specific condition. Your attorney will prepare you for your hearing and be there with you.
How the Decision is Reached
At the hearing, the judge will ask five questions. The answers to these five questions will determine the eligibility of the person filing for disability. Your attorney can answer the questions on your behalf.
The questions are regarding your employment, whether or not you’re currently able to work in your field when was your last date of employment, and some questions regarding your medical condition.
What to Do if You’ve Been Denied Social Security Disability Benefits
If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability benefits, you can file an appeal. Your attorney can help you with this appeal by letting you know what further information may be required.
Make sure to keep copies of all of your medical records for your appeal. Also, make sure to keep all of your contact information up to date so that they can reach you in regard to your appeal if something changes.
Your attorney can assist you in preparing your case so that it can be presented in the best light possible. You’ll need to be honest about your condition and how long it’s expected to last. You’ll also need to have all of your documentation ready for the judge to review your case.
