“Do I qualify for Social Security disability?”

The Social Security Administration (SSA) relies on a series of criteria in evaluating claims for disability benefits. An experienced disability lawyer serving Knightdale can help evaluate your claim and determine your eligibility, but here are five important questions the SSA will consider:

  1. Are you currently working? In order to qualify for disability benefits, you cannot be making more than $1,260 in wages per month.
  2. What is the extent of your disability? In evaluating your claim, the SSA will want to determine that your disabling condition “significantly interferes” with your ability to work.
  3. Is your disability a qualifying condition?” The SSA has a list (sometimes called the “Blue Book”) that details disabling conditions that may automatically qualify you for disability benefits provided you meet certain other criteria.
  4. Can you do work that you’ve done before? Before approving you for disability, the SSA will want to determine that you cannot reasonably perform work similar to what you’ve done in the past 15 years.
  5. Can you do a different kind of work? If you can’t perform work similar to what you’ve done in the past 15 years, you will also need to demonstrate that you cannot reasonably perform another type of work using what the SSA calls your “residual functioning capacity.” 

“I’ve already been denied for disability. What can I do?” 

The reality is, most applicants are initially denied Social Security disability benefits. In fact, more than 60 percent of initial applications for disability are denied.

That’s where a disability lawyer with experience in Knightdale can help.

The research is clear:

According to a recent study, on average, 60 percent of those who do hire a disability attorney are ultimately approved for benefits, while just 34 percent of those who do not hire a disability attorney are ultimately approved.
