Social Security Disability


If you have a disability and are unable to work, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. Getting your SSD benefits can be extremely difficult, with less than 33.2% of applicants getting accepted every year. Oftentimes benefits are denied entirely due to simple errors on the form or because the disabled person does not fully understand the Social Security disability application process.

You May Be Eligible For Benefits If:


You have worked at least five years in the past decade


You have a disability that is expected to last at least one year


You are unable to engage in substantial work activity

When considering your eligibility for Social Security disability benefits, it is important to note the distinction between being unable to work at your former job and being unable to work at all. Many people find their claims denied due to the fact that, while their disability prevents them from doing previous work, it does not prevent them from doing any work at all.

What to Do Next

Seek Medical Treatment

Your case will hinge largely on solid medical evidence that backs up any diagnosis you may have received. A lack of medical evidence will sink a disability case.

Be open and honest with your provider about how your condition is affecting your life, including work, home, and social activities.
