What is Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability is a precaution put in place by the government for individuals who cannot work due to long-term disability. Disability benefits are applied under two categories, SSDI and SSI. The Social Security disability insurance program (SSDI) provides support to individuals who have been employed for an adequate amount of time, 5 out of 10 years, and have paid into Social Security taxes. On the other hand, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provides support for disabled adults and children who have limited income and resources. For the most part, medical eligibilities for either program are determined through the same process.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

The SSA has very strict criteria regarding who is able to receive benefits. To qualify for Social Security Disability, an individual must be under 65 years old with a condition severe enough to restrict them from working. The number of work credits needed to qualify depends on what age the individual becomes disabled. There is a list of commonly approved conditions released by the SSA including cancer, autism, lupus, cardiovascular conditions, and many more. A complete list can be found here.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

People are denied SSD due to a variety of reasons. The biggest reasons include if your disability is due to drug and alcohol abuse, your medication condition is short term, you have previous convictions, lack of evidence, or are failing to comply with treatment. Oftentimes social workers will ask questions about follow-up appointments to make sure that the client is actively seeking and complying with treatment. An attorney can help keep you on track and make sure you are receiving the benefits you deserve.

Have You Been Denied SSDI / SSI?

The Social Security Administration denies nearly 2/3rds of all first applications so upon denial, you should not give up. An attorney can increase your chances of being approved as they know what to look for, they can help gather evidence and build your case to present clearly in court. It is important to not be discouraged and seek help from our trusted team of skilled attorneys. Statistics show that hiring an attorney can nearly double your odds of being approved for SSDI/SSI benefits.
