Five Things to Know about Social Security Disability


The Social Security Disability program can be confusing and difficult to navigate on your own, especially when you have a severe medical condition.

Before you apply for benefits, here are some essential things to know.

  1. Social Security does not give benefits for a short-term disability. Your condition has to have lasted, or be expected to last, for at least one year.
  2. To be considered disabled, you must:
  • Be no longer do your current job and
  • Be unable to do any other job.
  1. Filling out the Social Security Disability application completely and including the necessary medical information is crucial. Applications that are missing information or are incomplete will most likely be rejected immediately.
  2. Only around one-third of applicants are approved to receive benefits on their first attempt.
  3. Hiring an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer will give you the best chance to get your benefits as quickly as possible.
