Do You Qualify for Disability Benefits from the Government?
If you’re thinking about filing a claim for disability benefits, we encourage you to talk with an attorney about your case.
A disability lawyer with experience in Burlington NC can listen to you, evaluate your case, and help determine the best legal path forward to improve your chances of receiving SSD or SSDI benefits.
Although the SSA uses many criteria to evaluate claims for Social Security disability, the answers to these questions are especially important:
- Are you working right now? In order to be eligible for benefits, you cannot be earning more than $1,180 per month in wages.
- Is your condition severe? The SSA considers whether or not your disability is severe enough in order to impede your ability to work.
- Is your disability on the list of disabling conditions? The SSA maintains a list of conditions that automatically qualify you for disability benefits, provided you meet certain other criteria. This “Blue Book” list of qualifying conditions can be reviewed on the SSA website.
- Can you do the same work you’ve done previously? In order to qualify for benefits, you must demonstrate that you are unable to perform work that you have done in the past 15 years, along with meeting other criteria.
- Can you do another type of work? The SSA will want to determine whether or not you can perform work unrelated to the kind of work you did previously.
