Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, illness, mental condition or even loss of life that impacts your ability to sustain yourself, you might be eligible for disability benefits like Social Security Disability Insurance. In order to be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance, you must meet some criteria put forth by the Social Security Administration, including working a job or jobs that are covered by Social Security Disability Insurance and meeting the Social Security Administration’s definition of a disability.


How Does One Qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance


There is a five-step process that applicants will go through when applying for Social Security Disability Insurance; a set of questions to evaluate your eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance. According to the Social Security Administration website, these are the five questions that will be asked and evaluated:

  1. Are you working?
  2. Is your condition “severe”?
  3. Is your condition found in the list of disabling conditions?
  4. Can you do the work you did previously?
  5. Can you do any other type of work?
To find out more about these questions and how they are evaluated, please visit the Social Security Administration website and speak with a Social Security & Disability Law Attorney today.


What Happens if My Claim is Denied?


It is possible for your claim to be denied. This could be for a multitude of reasons, but don’t fret. You still have options. If your claim is valid and denied regardless, you will want to involve an attorney who specializes in Social Security Disability Insurance claims. They will be able to help you figure out why you were denied if you have a case, and what steps can be taken next. Having to deal with a denied claim on top of an injury or the loss of a loved one can be very taxing emotionally, mentally and financially so an experienced attorney will be able to help ease some of that burden for you and your family.
