Social Security Disability Frequently Asked Questions

On our Social Security Disability page, we take you through a complete explanation of the process. But if you still have questions, here are answers to the most common ones. For additional information, don’t hesitate to call us for a free consultation.

How do I apply for Social Security Disability benefits?

Both an Adult Disability Report and an application for Social Security Benefits are required to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. We can help you obtain the necessary forms and complete them properly.

How do I know if I’m entitled to disability benefits?

While many medical conditions and injuries entitle you to benefits, you can’t assume that you will qualify.  Our experienced Social Security Disability lawyers can help you determine your eligibility.  Or you can file for benefits yourself, and see if you are approved.  Be aware that most claims are denied the first time, but you can file an appeal.  We’re here to help.

Can I file if I haven’t worked for many years?

Social Security Disability requires that you work at least five out of the last ten years.  If you haven’t worked for several years, it’s possible that you won’t qualify.  Our experienced attorneys can help determine your eligibility.

When do I file for Social Security Disability benefits?

To be entitled to receive benefits, your medical condition must be so severe that you are not expected to work for at least a year, or that it will lead to death.   There is no specified time in which to apply, but you must me the requirements to qualify.  Note that there are steps that can shorten the process.  Contact us to learn more.

If my disability is not permanent, do I qualify for Social Security benefits?

It’s possible, but your medical condition must be so severe that you are not expected to work for at least a year.
