If you have already been through the initial social security disability benefits application process and been rejected don’t give up. You will need to file for an appeal within 60 days. At this point it is really important that your documents are prepared and filed accurately. A disability lawyer can help you with this and every other stage of the process.
The SSA does not pay out social security disability benefits on partial disabilities. A disability must be severe enough to stop a person being able to work. Your doctor simply saying you are not fit for work is not going to be accepted either. It is quite likely that you be sent for additional medical tests (at no expense to you). You also may need witnesses to show that you are incapable not only of the work you have been doing before your disability, but any kind of employment. You don’t need to be put off by what can sometimes seem an endless stream of regulations and criteria to be met. If you have a genuine disability a disability lawyer will make sure you have every chance of success in winning your SSI SSDI appeal. Remember that children are eligible for disabilities benefits too and survivors’ benefits may also be granted.
