Who is Eligible for Social Security Disability?

Let Our Atlanta SSD Attorney Help You Navigate the Eligibility Process!

While it can be easy to assume that simply having a disability automatically qualifies you for social security disability benefits, this is unfortunately not always the case. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a rigorous evaluation process for each individual who applies.

Our firm knows that the social security disability process can be exhausting, regardless of your physical suffering. At Stevens & Sullivan, LLC, each Atlanta social security disability lawyer has an in-depth understanding of the eligibility requirements. Our 40 years of experience can be the advantage you need during this difficult time.

Understanding Who Is Eligible for Social Security

One of the main requirements to be considered eligible for social security disability is that you have worked long enough in jobs that are covered by Social Security. 10 years is typically the minimum amount of time that you are required to have worked such a job. The second main requirement is that you have a medical condition applicable to the SSA's definition of disability.

If someone's disability application is rejected, there may be nothing they can do about it. However, it can be useful to understand why applications are rejected.

Some of the most common reasons include:

  • A disability is not severe enough
  • The SSA is unable to get into contact with the applicant
  • The applicant has a criminal conviction on their record
  • The applicant has committed fraud
  • The applicant did not complete prescribed therapy
  • The applicant does not cooperate with the SSA

While short-term disabilities may not be covered by social security disability benefits, workers' compensation or other insurance plans may apply.
