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 agency 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 only pays total disability, not partial disability.

Why Is Applying for Benefits so Hard?

Most people think it’s easy to win benefits. They think if they simply explain their circumstances to Social Security, someone will understand and start giving them benefits checks. Unfortunately, that’s not how it works.

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

Are Most People Who Apply Denied?

Unfortunately, yes. There are thousands of rules, regulations and procedures involved in the Social Security Disability program. You can be turned down if a Social Security employee doesn’t gather all of your medical evidence or if your doctor doesn’t understand the definition of disability. You can also get turned down if your appeal isn’t handled correctly.
