What is Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability is a set of benefits that are paid to people who are disabled. You will have to complete an application in order to get approved for Social Security Disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a list of medical conditions that qualify as disabilities.
However, it is important to remember that every condition is not listed in the SSA Blue Book. For example, diabetes and fibromyalgia are not included in the Blue Book. However, if the conditions are severe enough to interfere with one’s ability to work, you should contact an attorney.
It is also important to remember that you do not need to have a physical medical condition in order to qualify for Social Security Disability. People who suffer from mental disorders such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder may be able to get Social Security Disability.
The Importance of Social Security Disability
Disability is a subject that many people do not like to think about. Most people go to work every day and do not think about what will happen if they are unable to work. However, it is estimated that 25 percent of 20-year-olds today will be disabled by the time that they reach age 67. Social Security benefits ensure that people will be able to take care of themselves and their families if they become disabled.
The Importance of Hiring a Social Security Disability Lawyer
It is estimated that 70 percent of Social Security Disabilities are denied the first time. In many cases, these applications are denied because a person did not submit enough information. Others are denied because the person makes too much money. Additionally, if one does not follow the treatment protocol established by a doctor, then their application may be denied.
