Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal program designed to provide long-term financial protection for adults who have paid into the program through the years of their employment.

If you’ve been victimized by a crippling illness or injury, if your body works against you rather than with you, if you’re unable to hold down a fulltime job to support yourself and your family because of a medical condition, you may be thinking about applying for Social Security Disability benefits.

Social Security Disability is legal decision and not a medical decision. (This is a fact that often baffles people because of the legal mumbo-jumbo.) Just know that the physician who treats your condition and provides details about your medical status must be a credible medical professional, and must provide honest, detailed information. Once that information and other details are filed, the decision is ultimately up to the Social Security Administration.

If your income from wages caused your benefits to cease within the past five years, and if you meet a few other requirements – including still having the original medical condition you had when you were first approved – you will not need to reapply. A program called Expedited Reinstatement has been put in place as a work incentive for recipients of Social Security Disability.

The Social Security Administration will review your medical condition periodically. If it is anticipated that your condition will improve, the first review is typically scheduled for between 6 to 18 months after the date you applied for disability. If improvement of your condition is technically possible but your doctor doesn’t expect you to improve, then medical reviews are scheduled roughly about every 36 months. If your doctor states that your condition is not one that is possible to improve, it’s typically 84 months or so between each review.

Having thoroughly detailed documentation of your disability will increase the likelihood you’ll be approved for Social Security Disability. The more thorough the information you provide, the better. The Social Security Administration’s website provides a detailed list of what they would like to see. It would definitely help your case if you would gather as much of this information as you can before you submit your initial application.

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, the applicant must have a medical condition that meets the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability. Social Security Disability benefits are only given to eligible applicant who suffer from a severe, long-term, total disability.

So, for a Social Security Disability benefits application to be approved, the applicant must prove that they have a severe medical impairment that is documented by objective medical evidence, prove that their condition has limited their ability to perform the duties of their job and that these limitations make it impossible for them to return to work, prove that they also lack the ability to change jobs to a different type of employment where they could perform job duties, and they must provide evidence that their disabling condition is expected to last for at least one year while being severe enough to make it impossible for them to engage in the duties of their job.

If you are disabled and need Social Security Disability income, you may benefit from the guidance of an experienced attorney.
