Social Security Disability Requirements

"Do I qualify for Social Security Disability?" It's a question on the minds of many people suffering from serious physical and mental disabilities.

I am Trevor A. Brown, an SSDI lawyer in Dalton, Georgia. As a disability attorney with more than 10 years of experience, I can advise you on whether you might qualify for benefits. If you do, I can guide you through all aspects of the SSDI process and provide you with the strong advocacy you need.

Qualifying Long-Term Impairment And Sufficient Work Credits

In order to qualify for SSDI benefits:

  • You must have a qualifying physical or mental health impairment.
  • Your disability must have lasted at least 12 months or be expected to last at least 12 months or be expected to result in death.
  • You must have worked enough to have earned sufficient credits.

While these may sound straightforward, in application they are often not. What exactly is a qualifying illness or condition? The effects of a physical impairment may be easier to document than mental illness or fibromyalgia. Based on my experience, I can explain what evidence may be the most compelling to the agency and help you build the strongest possible case.

You Must Prove That You Are Disabled

Your disability may be obvious to you and your loved ones, but the Social Security Administration needs to see thorough documented proof before approving your claim. It is very important to obtain medical treatment and follow your doctor's orders. I can help you understand all of the steps you can take to improve your chance of obtaining a successful result and avoid the wait related to an appeal after a denied claim.
