If There are Certain Things I Cannot Do, am I Eligible for Benefits?

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are intended to assist those who are disabled with cash payments which depend on how long and how much you have paid into Social Security . To be eligible to receive SSD benefits, you must:

  • Be determined to be disabled by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
  • Have worked and previously paid into the social security system.

Determination of eligibility for payment does not depend on your assets or the income or assets of your spouse. Neither is eligibility based on whether a work injury made you disabled or the type of disability, whether it be mental or physical. You must only show, to the satisfaction of the SSA, that you are totally and permanently disabled.

What Happens if I was Denied Disability Benefits?

Appealing the denial of a Social Security disability claim through Social Security is not an in-court process. Instead, challenging the SSD denial is done through the Social Security Administration. Generally speaking , you have a period of 65 days from the date of your denial. Read your denial notice carefully and it will state if you have a shorter period. You will not have to discuss your private matters, including your injury or financial circumstances, in front of a jury. There are Federal Court appeals available if you have exhausted your appeals through the Social Security Administration.
