Are you eligible for Social Security disability?

The Social Security Administration relies on a variety of criteria to determine whether or not someone is eligible for disability benefits from the government.

The following five questions are used by the SSA to help determine your eligibility:

  • Are you currently working? According to SSA rules, you cannot be earning more than $1,180 per month in wages. If you are, you are not eligible for benefits.
  • How severe is your disability? In order to qualify for benefits, the SSA needs determine that your condition is significant enough to interfere with your ability to work.
  • Is your condition on SSA’s list? The SSA has a list of conditions that automatically qualify you for disability benefits provided you meet other criteria. You can view this list of qualifying conditions on the SSA website.
  • Can you do the same work? To qualify for SSD or SSDI benefits, you must not be able to perform the same work you have been doing for the past 15 years, provided you meet other criteria.
  • Can you do any other kind of work? If you are unable to perform work you’ve done previously, the SSA will also want to determine that you are not able to do work of a different type.

A Social Security disability lawyer with experience in the Asheville area can help you navigate these questions and prepare the best possible case to win you benefits.
