“Do I qualify for disability benefits?”
If you suffer from a disability and are unable to work, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits from the government.
While the application and appeals process can be complicated, in general, the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers five important questions in reviewing your disability claim:
- Are you currently earning an income? In order to qualify for SSD benefits, you cannot earn more than $1,260 per month in wages.
- What is the extent of your disability? To qualify for benefits, you must demonstrate that your disabling condition “significantly interferes” with your ability to perform work.
- Is your condition listed in the SSA’s “Blue Book”? The “Blue Book” is a list of conditions that automatically qualify you for disability benefits provided you meet certain other criteria.
- Can you do work similar to what you’ve done before? In determining your eligibility, you must demonstrate that you are unable to perform work similar to what you’ve done in the past 15 years.
- Can you do a different type of work? Once you’ve satisfied the previous question, you also need to demonstrate to the SSA that you cannot reasonably perform another type of work with your “residual functional capacity.”

“I’ve already been denied. What now?”
If you’ve previously been denied Social Security disability benefits, do not be discouraged.
The reality is that roughly 70 percent of initial disability claims are denied by the SSA. However, a disability lawyer with experience in the Lumberton area can help improve your chances of ultimately obtaining benefits.
Research shows that those who do not hire a disability attorney were ultimately approved for benefits just 32 percent of the time. However, those who did hire a disability lawyer were ultimately approved 60 percent of the time.
That’s a big difference.
