Social Security Disability
Atlanta Social Security Disability Attorney
Individuals who are rendered unable to work due to an injury, illness, or disease may be able to qualify for income and/or medical coverage benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

If you believe you qualify for social security disability benefits but are unsure how to apply, McElreath & Stevens, LLC is here for you.

When you work with an Atlanta social security disability attorney from our team, we guarantee that you will be treated with value and respect every step of the way.
How does the social security evaluation process work?
If you are ready to apply for social security disability, you can do it one of three ways – over the phone, in person, or online. You are required to fill out the necessary applications as they relate to your circumstances.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) then applies five questions when reviewing your application:
- Are you working?
- Is your condition "severe"?
- Is your condition found in the list of disabling conditions?
- Can you do the work you did previously?
- Can you do any other type of work?
These questions are found on the SSA website. Their list of disabling conditions includes conditions for every major body system which must be severe enough to interfere with basic-work activities. In order to pass the SSA's evaluation, you must have at least one severe impairment.
When considering your ability to work due to your impairment, the SSA will take into account your age and the circumstances surrounding your disability. The process of determining your limitations can be time-consuming and difficult for many individuals.
