  • You can’t to do work you’ve done before;
  • The SSA determines you can’t adjust to other work because of your physical and/or mental condition(s); and
  • Your disability is expected to last for at least one full year (or result in death).

  • Why Is Applying for Benefits so Hard?

    You may think if you just explain your circumstances to Social Security, they will understand and start giving you benefits checks. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. Applying for disability benefits is a complex legal process. You must meet the SSA’s definition of “disabled.”

  • Why Are Most People Denied Disability Benefits?

    There are thousands of rules, regulations and procedures involved in the Social Security Disability program. You can be turned down if your doctor doesn’t understand the definition of disability, or if a Social Security employee doesn’t gather all of your medical evidence. You can also get turned down if your appeal isn’t handled properly.
