    HOW DOES THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION (SSA) DECIDE I’M DISABLED? You may be too sick or injured to work anymore, but does that mean that the Social Security Administration (SSA) is automatically going to pay you Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits? Unfortunately, the answer is “No!”

    HOW DOES THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION (SSA) DECIDE I’M DISABLED? Even though you know that you can no longer do your job—or any job for that matter—the SSA is going to make you jump through hoops to prove you’re unable to work, and that you deserve Social Security Disability payments. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who has become too sick or injured to continue working, you may be wondering how the SSA determines if you’re disabled “enough” to receive Social Security Disability benefits.

    HOW CAN I PROVE THAT I’M “LEGALLY DISABLED”? Before you can receive SSD payments, you must prove to the SSA that you are “legally disabled,” meaning that you: · Have an injury or illness that is preventing you from doing the work you used to do; · Are unable to adjust to new types of work; · Are expected to be disabled for at least 12 months, or have a condition that is expected to result in your death.

    HOW CAN I PROVE THAT I’M “LEGALLY DISABLED”? Several medical and mental health conditions may qualify you as being “legally disabled” including: chronic pain, heart disease, diabetes, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, cancer, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Hepatitis C, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), spinal injuries/back pain, Lupus, lung disease, bipolar disorder and many other medical and mental health conditions.

    WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO PROVE THAT I’M DISABLED? The Social Security Administration’s laws are complex. Filing for Social Security Disability benefits, or appealing a denial, is a complicated process. Most people who apply for Disability without the assistance of an experienced Disability Advocate are denied benefits.

    WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO PROVE THAT I’M DISABLED? In order to prove to the SSA that you have a qualifying disability and that you deserve SSD payments, you must complete a lengthy, 5-step application and provide the Social Security Administration with:

    WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO PROVE THAT I’M DISABLED? · A complete history of your education, work experience, and earnings; · Evidence of your medical or mental health condition, including medical records, physical therapy records and prescription medication lists; · Your testimony, including a full list of your symptoms and side effects and how they make you unable to work;

    WILL THE SSA TRY TO DISPROVE MY CLAIM? It’s becoming more and more popular for the SSA to do whatever it takes to try to catch you not following doctor’s orders, or prove that you are not as sick or injured as you claim to be. Just like private insurance companies used to follow around claimants with video cameras doing activities they weren’t supposed to be able to do, the SSA is known for researching SSD claimants to prove their claims are false. Only now, public social media pages are making it easier than ever for the SSA to claim you aren’t as sick or injured as you say you are.

    WILL THE SSA TRY TO DISPROVE MY CLAIM? If you’re applying for Social Security Disability or thinking about doing so, keep all social media profiles private, always follow doctor’s orders and never post anything that would suggest you aren’t actually disabled.

    WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I THINK I’M ELIGIBLE FOR SSD? If you’re disabled and no longer able to work, you should file for Social Security Disability benefits as soon as possible, so you can receive as much back pay as you are eligible for. But before you fill out that application, make sure to contact an experienced Disability Advocate for Assistance. He or she will be able to guide you through the difficult process of proving to the SSA that you are in fact disabled, and win the Social Security Disability benefits that you deserve.
