If you are suffering from a disabling condition you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits that provide assistance to you and your loved ones.
In order to determine if you are eligible to receive benefits, you must fill out an online application with the Social Security Administration (SSA). This application helps the SSA determine if you meet its strict qualifications for benefits.
Due to the complexities of the SSD process, it takes more than simply filling out the online application to see if you qualify. It requires that your medical condition has been documented with routine visits to a physician, including following through with treatment options.
Your condition must also be one that the SSA recognizes as disabling, which prevents you from working and is not anticipated to improve within one year.
The following are the most common conditions related to SSA disability claims:
Common disorders can be found in the Social Security Administration’s Blue Book of Impairments. The book details chronic conditions that the SSA has determined meet its requirements for benefits.
If your condition is not included in the Blue Book, you may still be eligible for benefits. In these situations, the SSA will carefully evaluate the documents and information you submit about your condition to make sure that it meets its requirements.
