What is considered a disability to qualify for Social Security disability benefits?
There are many different illnesses and conditions that can lead you to qualify to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Some illnesses or conditions may automatically qualify you for benefits and other illnesses or conditions may produce symptoms that can get you qualified for social security disability benefits due to the restrictions you have from those illnesses or conditions. You may be asking yourself, what is considered a disability to qualify for Social Security disability benefits?
The illness or condition can be physical or mental or it can be a combination of both. Some of the most commonly approved conditions for disability are back pain, arthritis, and joint pain but this is by no means a complete list of issues that can get you approved for disability. However, whether your disability is mental or physical, you must be unable to work at a substantial gainful activity level due to your physical or mental illness or conditions for a period of at least 12 months.
The social security disability process can be a long and difficult process and it is extremely important to have representation in order to walk you through the process and handle the appeals (as the vast majority of applications are initially denied by Social Security). With the help of a Social Security Disability Attorney, you can make sure your rights are protected and that you are following all the proper guidelines to receive your SSD benefits.
