Are You Disabled?

Are You Qualified for Social Security Disability Insurance

Answer the Questions Below

First, you must have enough work history to qualify for disability benefits.

Explanation: Social Security Disability is an insurance program regulated by the government. Like any insurance program you must pay into it to receive benefits. Typically, this is done when an individual receives a paycheck and there is an amount taken out and paid to the United States Social Security Administration.

Are you working? If you are working and your average earnings is $1,070 or more per month you cannot be considered disabled.

Explanation: Disability insurance is for individuals who can no longer work or support themselves and are requesting the government for assistance. If you are able to work you do not need assistance.

Is your condition “severe”?

If your condition interferes with basic work functions your condition could be considered "severe" which will qualify you for disability benefits. 
Explanation: If you are no longer able to perform simple tasks that are necessary for work you could be a candidate to receive Social Security Benefits.

Is your condition found on the list of disabling conditions?

Can you do the work you have previously?

If your condition/s are “severe” but not to the same extent as the medical conditions listed on the ssa.gov website then the Social Security Administration will determine if your condition interferes with the work you have previously done.

Explanation: If you develop condition/s, but are still able to function at your previous work you do not qualify for disability insurance.

Can you do any other type of work?

If you cannot do the work you have done in the past, the Social Security office will see if you are able to adjust to other work.

Explanation: They consider a number of variables such as: your medical condition, your age, education, past work experience and any transferable skills you may have. If you are unable to adjust to other work, your claim will be approved.
