Social Security Disability First Steps
Social Security Law states that if you have suffered a physical or mental condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death, and are unable to work, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. However, each year two out of three persons who apply for disability benefits are initially rejected. Why?
Just take a look at what the Social Security Administration has to say about qualifying for disability in its publication “Understanding the Benefits”’ 2014:
“Our disability rules are different from those of private plans or other government agencies. The fact that you qualify for disability from another agency or program does not mean you will be eligible for disability benefits from us. And having a statement from your doctor indicating you are disabled does not mean you will automatically be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.”
What is easy to understand is that Social Security Disability Law is a highly specialized area of practice where the government utilizes hundreds of regulations to determine whether or not you are going to receive benefits that are rightfully yours.
