Social Security Disability Qualification

Here are three simple questions to help you determine if you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits:

  • Have you been unable to work for at least 12 consecutive months, or does your doctor believe that you will not be able to work consistently for at least 12 months?
  • Does your medical condition prevent you from obtaining any kind of employment in any line of work, not just your previous line of work?
  • Have you been employed for at least five out of the last ten years?

If you answered "yes" to these questions, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability. Even if you did not answer "yes" to the last question, you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income.

For a thorough analysis of your situation and Social Security Disability qualifications, contact an attorney at Marsh & Mittas for a free consultation. 

​Qualifying And Proving That You Qualify Are Two Different Things

On the surface, obtaining Social Security Disability benefits seems so simple. You determine that you qualify; and then, you send in your application. Many people are surprised, when they receive notification from the Social Security Administration that their application was denied.

Your application can't just show that you qualify. It has to prove it. There are specific things that the Social Security Administration looks for; and if they do not see those things quickly, the application will be denied. With more than 40 years of combined experience handling these matters, our lawyers know what needs to be included with applications, when you apply for SSD.

When an application is denied, we will build a case that includes medical evidence and other details that clearly prove that you are disabled and eligible for benefits. We will fight the system on your behalf to get you the benefits you need.
