Who Is Eligible For Social Security Disability Benefits?

To be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, a person must be deemed "totally disabled" by meeting the following requirements:

  • He or she must not be capable of doing the work he or she did prior to the disability.
  • He or she cannot perform other, comparable work, as can be reasonably expected given the claimant's age, education and experience.
  • The claimant's disability is expected to last more than 12 months (one year), or is expected to end in his or her death.

What If My Claim Is Denied?

It is very common for our clients to be denied in their first application for Social Security Disability benefit packages. Indeed, more than 75 percent of initial applications are denied. After denial, applicants have 60 days to file an appeal. While it is not necessary to hire a Social Security Disability lawyer to assist with the application reconsideration process, the proceedings can involve a massive amount of potentially confusing paperwork, and claimants who have legal assistance stand a much greater chance of getting approval of their claims.

When filing a reconsideration application after the initial denial of benefits, it is crucial claimants have a detailed medical history to document their disabilities. Our Social Security Disability benefit attorneys know how to help disabled claimants assemble all of the necessary medical documentation, including records of doctor visits, treatment histories and medications prescribed.
