“Do I qualify for disability benefits?”
The SSA uses a comprehensive set of criteria to evaluate claims for disability, and pays especially close attention to these five questions:
- Are you currently working? In order to qualify for disability benefits, you must not be earning more than $1,260 per month in wages.
- What is the extent of your disability? The SSA will want to determine that your disabling condition “significantly interferes” with your ability to work.
- Is your disability on the list of qualifying conditions? The SSA maintains a list of conditions that may automatically qualify you for disability benefits provided you meet certain other criteria.
- Can you do work that you’ve done previously? You must prove to the SSA that you can no longer perform work similar to the type you’ve done in the last 15 years.
- Can you do another type of work? You must also demonstrate that you are unable to do a different kind of work with your “residual functioning capacity.”
