What is Social Security Disability?

Social security disability (also known as SSD) is a social security benefit that pays disabled people or those who are unable to work monthly, if they have not yet reached retirement age. You may have also heard it called “workers’ disability.” This is typically reserved for those who have been injured on the job and will not be able to go back to work for an indefinite amount of time. However, it is a common misconception that you must have sustained an injury at work to receive social security disability. Regardless of where or how you sustained your injury, if you have a long-term illness or have suddenly become a full-time caretaker to your child, you may be eligible to receive benefits. 

A thorough understanding of the claim process and qualifications for eligibility is essential to achieving a successful outcome to your claim. Our experienced social security disability lawyers provide you with the guidance and expertise you need to file a successful claim. Contact us today for a free consultation!

Why You May Not Have Heard of Social Security Disability

Since this is a complicated system, it is not widely publicized as a way to receive financial help from the government. However, if you’ve run into an unexpected situation with disability or illness, you’re entitled to explore the possibility of this benefit. With help from the team at Nogales & Associates, Social Security Disability could help you and your family stay afloat.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability

There are a number of legal, financial, medical and professional requirements to qualify for Social Security Disability. For starters, you do not have to be a United States citizen to utilize this benefit. Permanent residents and lawfully present workers who have paid taxes may be able to tap into their social security disability. Social Security Disability benefits are not based on how much income you receive, but rather how much you have worked. How much social security disability you’ve acquired depends on how long you’ve been working and how old you were when you became disabled. However, even if you have been out of work for a while, you should still be able to utilize this benefit.

How Medical Conditions May Automatically Qualify You Benefits

The medical component of Social Security Disability (SSD) is also important as these benefits are only given to people with serious, long-term disabilities that leave them totally unable to work. This means that your health has kept you from performing day-to-day work tasks for at least one year. There are a few things that automatically qualify you for SSD:

  • If you identify with a “disabled condition” as listed by Social Security,
  • If you’ve been diagnosed with a severe disease; and,
  • If you have a special provision such as disabled children or declining vision.

Specific conditions that will most likely qualify you include heart conditions, back conditions, respiratory illnesses, impaired vision or hearing, neurological disorders, some mental disorders, immune system disorders, digestive issues and kidney disease.
