What Are The Eligibility Requirements For Social Security Disability Payments?

If you are considering submitting a disability claim, you may be wondering about the Social Security disability requirements. Here are some of the requirements you must meet to qualify for disability payments through SSI or SSDI:

  • You have a health condition that keeps you from working. This includes both your previous employment as well as new employment.
  • The duration of your condition has been or is expected to be 12 months or more, or is considered terminal.

Aside from these medical Social Security disability requirements, the Social Security Administration (SSA) also has a system in place to analyze your work history. They use this to determine whether you have worked long enough and recently enough to qualify for aid.

There are also different requirements for SSI and SSDI applicants. A Social Security disability lawyer can help you verify your eligibility to apply for these disability benefits.

The Advantages Of Hiring A Disability Claims Lawyer

Most claims submitted to the Social Security Administration are rejected. There are many causes of claim denials. For example, an application might have unnecessary information, or a lack of medical evidence.

With the support of a skilled Social Security disability lawyer, you can avoid some of these reasons for denial. Knowing what to put on your application is key. A knowledgeable SSI lawyer will ensure that your application presents the facts of your case in the best possible way to get your claim approved.

Additional ways an SSDI disability attorney can help include the following:

  • Working with your doctor and other professionals to obtain medical evidence that supports your claim
  • Assisting you in completing your application fully and correctly
  • Submitting a claim appeal if your initial application is denied
  • Representing you at a disability claim hearing
  • And more…

Working with a disability claims lawyer greatly increases your chances of acceptance by the SSA. A Social Security disability lawyer is familiar with many aspects of SSDI and SSI claims, and can guide you through the process.

Submitting a claim involves a lot of paperwork, and it’s important to ensure that everything is completed correctly. An incorrect application or one that is missing the necessary supporting documentation will likely be denied.

If your claim is denied, a disability claims lawyer can help you appeal your claim. The next step is a hearing, where you and your attorney will present your case to a judge in-person. During this hearing, you have a much better chance of approval with a lawyer representing you.
