What Is Considered a Disability?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) defines a disability as an inability to work due to a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. The SSA looks at several factors when determining if you are eligible for SSD benefits, including:
- Your age
- Your education
- Your work history
- Your ability to do your past work
- Your existing medical conditions
- Your ability to do any other type of work you are capable of performing
The SSA also considers your ability to perform certain types of work, even if you are not able to do your past work. The SSA uses a system called the "Residual Functional Capacity" (RFC) to determine what types of work you are capable of doing.
How Can Our Attorneys Help?
The application process for SSD benefits is not easy. The SSA has strict rules about how to apply and what evidence to submit. Our attorneys can help you navigate the process and submit the right application. We can also help you gather evidence and prepare for your hearing.
If you are denied benefits, our attorneys can help you appeal the decision. We know how the SSA makes its decisions and can help you build a strong case.
