What is Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability is any benefit that you receive from Social Security after becoming disabled and unable to work. The money will come out of the money that you and many other workers have paid into the system and will be paid to you through the Social Security Administration.

Am I eligible to receive Social Security benefits?

There are a few requirements to be able to qualify for Social Security Disability. The most important requirement requires that you have paid into the Social Security system for long enough to be considered covered in the event that you become disabled. Secondly, your disability must be projected to last longer than twelve months and be considered severe enough that you are unable to work. An attorney can help you define specific aspects of your situation and guide you on the best legal path to take.

Do I need to be unemployed to receive Social Security?

Not necessarily. You can still be employed as long as your salary or pay does not exceed approximately $830 a month. Most people, however, need to apply for SSD because of a disability that is so severe, they can no longer work or provide for their family.

How do I apply for disability?

Applications for SSD are available online and in person. Through the Social Security website, you may be able to apply online for disability benefits. Applying online can help start your claim immediately and can be done at home. If you wish to apply in person, you will need to visit a local Social Security office and ensure that you bring all necessary paperwork and identification with you.

Can an SSD Attorney Help Me File a Claim?

At our firm, we start preparing for a hearing the moment we take a case on, regardless of what level it is at in the disability process. We aim to receive favorable outcomes for our clients without ever going to a hearing and have been able to do so before. Our firm understands that this time in your life is stressful and time is of the essence; receiving your benefits is crucial to you and your family.

I have been denied Social Security Disability. What do I do?

If you have been denied benefits, it is important that you work with an attorney. It is fairly common to be denied benefits in the first few stages. If you have all necessary qualifications to receive Social Security and have still been denied, you may make an appeal within the first 60 days of your initial denial letter.

Reasons for Social Security Disability Denial

While there are many reasons your SSD claim may be denied, below is a list of common reasons applicants are initially denied:

  • Fraud – If the SSA believes the applicant lied on their application to obtain SSD, they may deny that application.
  • Short-Term Disability – To qualify for Social Security benefits, your disability must last for at least a year. The family of an employee who was killed on the job may also seek SSD benefits.
  • Past Criminal Convictions – Convicts are not eligible to receive benefits if the disability was caused from an injury sustained while committing a felony. Convicts who have violated probation or parole are also ineligible to receive benefits.
  • Disability an Effect of Drug or Alcohol Abuse – If the applicant became disabled and their drug or alcohol addiction was a factor in the cause of their disability, then that applicant will not be eligible.
  • Refusal to Cooperate: Part of the application process requires you to submit your medical records, if this is not included in your application, you could be denied SSD benefits.

Will I have to go to court?

Most likely, yes. Once you have been denied, most judges will request your presence at a Reconsideration hearing. If you are working with an attorney at this point, you and your attorney will both be present at the hearing. You may testify regarding your disability and medical problems and request an appeal of your denied benefits.
