What disqualifies a person from disability?
Social Security Disability (SSD) is a program that provides financial assistance to those with limited resources who are unable to work due to an illness or injury. In order to be eligible for Social Security Disability, applicants must meet certain criteria and have a medical condition that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death.
What Is Considered A Disability?
In general, Social Security Administration (SSA) considers disability if the applicant has a physical or mental impairment that prevents them from engaging in any substantial gainful activity. To qualify for Social Security Disability, applicants must also provide evidence of their disability-related limitations, including medical records and treatment notes from healthcare providers. Additionally, SSA may consider age, education level, past work experience, and current skills when assessing whether a person is disabled.
What Disqualifies Someone From Social Security Disability?
In some cases, certain medical conditions may be excluded from Social Security Disability benefits. Additionally, the Social Security Administration may disqualify an applicant if they are able to engage in some form of substantial gainful activity despite their impairment or if they have failed to follow their doctor’s prescribed treatment plan.
In addition to these factors, SSA will also consider whether the applicant has sufficient resources and income to support themselves without Social Security Disability benefits. Finally, applicants must meet a five-month waiting period before receiving Social Security Disability payments. This is meant to ensure that applicants with more severe disabilities can receive necessary financial assistance more quickly than those with less severe disabilities.
What Can I Do If I Am Disqualified?
If you are disqualified from Social Security Disability benefits, you may be able to appeal the decision. An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer can help you navigate the appeals process and provide the necessary evidence that supports your claim. Furthermore, Social Security Disability lawyers can help guide you through the entire Social Security Disability process and ensure that all required forms and documents have been properly completed. Ultimately, a Social Security Disability attorney can help you successfully receive Social Security Disability payments if it is determined that you meet Social Security Administration’s criteria for disability.
