Let A SSDI Lawyer Help You Get the Disability Benefits You Need
Disability is defined by the Social Security Administration as “ the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for continuous period of not less than 12 months.” Compelling medical documentation must be presented in order for the SSA to make this determination, and if you do not have the medical data to prove your disability claim, you will be denied disability benefits.
The SSA Offices for Glen Burnie, Maryland are located:
Glen Burnie, MD 21061-3962
Or call the Social Security Administration’s national toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213.
It is also not enough to just have the medical records. They must also be organized and exhibited in such a way as to give the Disability Examiner or ALJ (Administrative Law Judge) a compelling and complete look at the complex medical issues you may be facing. In addition to laboratory or test results, treatment notes are also necessary, as well as a detailed statement from your treating physician handling your care. A simple letter from your doctor stating you are unable to work is not enough. What the SSA needs to see is a detailed explanation of how your condition impacts your ability to work.
There are three factors to how the SSA determines the status of your disability claim and whether or not you qualify for benefits. One is how much you have paid into the social security disability benefits program, and whether you have worked long enough to qualify for benefits. Two is meeting the disability definition as detailed above, and three is how this condition affects your ability to earn a living in a job that reflects your work history, age, and education level. It is truly a complex process, although disability attorneys that specialize in this kind of work can greatly increase your odds of a winning case.
