Whether or not the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers you eligible for Social Security Disability benefits depends on if you meet the agency’s definition of “disabled.”

The SSA will only consider you disabled if:

  • The agency determines you can’t adjust to other work because of your physical and/or mental condition(s);
  • You are unable to do work you’ve done before or any other full-time work in the national economy; and
  • Your disability is expected to last for at least 12 months (or result in death).

Social Security will only pay total disability, not partial disability.

Is Applying for Benefits Easy?

Most people think it’s simple to win benefits. They think if they just go and explain their circumstances to Social Security, someone will understand and start writing them benefits checks. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.

Applying for disability benefits is a complicated legal process. You must meet the SSA’s definition of “disabled.”

If I Apply, Will I Be Denied?

Unfortunately, the answer is most likely yes. There are thousands of rules, regulations and procedures involved in the Social Security Disability program. You can be denied if a Social Security employee doesn’t gather all of your medical evidence or if your doctor doesn’t understand the legal definition of disability. You can also receive a denial if your appeal isn’t handled correctly.
