A Chatsworth SSDI Attorney Can Assist You In Receiving Disability Benefits
The Social Security Administration’s definition of disability can be quite different from that of a private employer or a private insurance company. Understanding what the Social Security Administration definition is can help you and your disability lawyer collect the medical evidence necessary to prove your case and receive disability benefits to which you are entitled. Filing the initial disability application is only the first step in a long process.

The Social Security Administration’s definition of disability is complicated. They depend on the medical evidence supplied by your medical care providers to support your disability claim as it pertains to your ability to sustain Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) meaning, how your physical or mental medical condition affects your ability to earn a living. You may work and still qualify for disability benefits, however, there is a threshold limit (currently $1000) you can earn per month. If you exceed this amount, you will not qualify for disability benefits, and if you currently receive them, they could be denied.
A disability attorney can assist you in the process of qualifying for disability benefits. The medical evidence is an integral part of your case. In these circumstances, a simple letter from your treating physician is not enough to sway the decision in your favor. A detailed report from your doctor documenting your medical condition (or combination of conditions or illness) and how it limits your ability to perform your job is much more effective. Disability lawyers are well-versed in the information required to help you win your case, and in many instances, have established a rapport with the medical community and can help you get the information you need for your disability claim.
Chatsworth Disability Benefits
Although many Chatsworth families are facing severe financial consequences due to a disabling condition or serious illness, regular and consistent medical care is imperative to both your health and your disability claim. According to the Social Security Administration standards, any medical record over ninety days old is considered as part of your medical history and has little bearing on your current medical status. Therefore, it is recommended you see your treating physician at least every two months, in order to maintain your records and progress of your medical condition.
Often, more than one illness or condition is taken into consideration by the Social Security Administration. Many claims are approved not because of one serious illness, but because of a combination of factors that makes it impossible for someone to continue with their particular job. This means you should report all symptoms or complaints from which you are suffering, so they can be properly treated and documented. This could have a big impact on the success of your disability claim.
