Each year, thousands of disabled workers, physically or mentally, are helped through Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. These can cover many common health complications such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, brain injuries, and many more. Contact a Social Security Disability attorney if you have a health complication affecting your ability to work.
To understand your disability case can be very complicated due to the Social Security Administration having its own definition of “disabled”. SSD benefit processing can be very lengthy and exasperating, so it is best to contact an experienced SSD attorney for help in understanding your case.
What Does “Disabled” Mean to the Social Security Administration?
The SSA's definition of disabled is a severe medical condition preventing you from work. A severe medical condition, according to the SSA, is a condition that significantly affects your daily life, and it must be at least yearlong. Applicants can easily prove they have a severe medical condition, but complications encountered when proving that it prevents them from working. Applicants must recognize the limitations or restrictions that their condition causes. SSD benefits are approved if you cannot do the work you used to do and if you also cannot do other work. You may talk to an experienced SSD attorney to correctly identify eligibility for these benefits.
How Can a Social Security Disability Attorney Help?
Experienced and knowledgeable SSD attorneys can make your application easier by:
- Guiding you through appeals
- Proving the severity of your disability to the SSA
- Gathering medical records and documents for proof
- Recognizing points of improvement in your appeal
It is important to emphasize the value of perseverance during the process of having your claim approved. Many claims are denied twice causing applicants to appeal many times before they are approved. Appeal until you receive the benefits you deserve. More details on SSD benefit eligibility and picking knowledgeable Disability Law attorneys in the future.
