Disability Claims Explained
(Quoted by the Social Security Administration)

"Disability" according to the SSA (Social Security Administration) and under the federal Social Security Disability Act; Disability is recognized as the "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physician or mental impairment which can be expected to last  for a continuous period of not less than 12 months or result in death."


Social Security Disability - or SSDI

Disability claims pertaining to Social Security Disability or SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) are paid to individuals who have worked in the recent years. Usually you have to work 5 out of the last 10 years.

For individuals under 31 years old, the requirements are a little different since they have not been in the work force as long.

How Much will I get for my Disability Claim?

The dollar amount Social Security Disability or SSi benefits an individual will get depends on how much that individual worked in the past and earned during that time or in the case of SSi it depends on the individual's claim circumstances . For disabled widow's, it depends on how much the spouse earned and for a disabled child, it depends on how much the parent earned.


What typically happens in a Social Security Disability Claim process?

Typically you are denied your Disability Claim in the initial stage (good reason why it is wise to have an experienced disability attorney).

Only about 40% of the claims are approved at that stage sometimes less. The next stage, Disability Reconsideration, about 20% of the individuals win at that stage. The last stage, the Hearing stage is where the individual actually has a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. The social security disability or ssi disability hearing is informal with only the judge, his secretary and often times the judge will have a vocational expert present to testify as to what jobs the individual can perform.


Social Security Disability Attorney (is it wise to have one?)

Social Security Disability attorney an experienced one usually can be the difference.  No fee is collected if your social security disability claim is not won, and fees are only collected on the back end. Disability lawyers receive 25% of the back benefits up to a certain amount which has been set by law. Get a FREE Immediate review by an experienced disability attorney in your state.

  1. Statistically claimants that are represented by an attorney are much more likely to win their claim.

What to expect in a typical Social Security Disability claim process:

The hardest part of the whole claims process is being patient.
