Social Security Disability FAQ

Are you trying to obtain Social Security disability benefits? If you suffer from a recognized disabling medical condition or conditions that render you incapable of pursuing gainful employment for at least twelve months or beyond, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.

Many initial claims for Social Security benefits are denied, but you still have options. After your initial denial, you may request that your unfavorable determination be reconsidered. If the initial decision is denied upon reconsideration, you may request a hearing before an administrative law judge. If still denied, you may appeal your denial to the Appeals Council.

The process of obtaining veterans disability benefits can be daunting, but you do not have to go through it without legal assistance. The law defines an eligible veteran as a “person who served in the active military, naval or air services, and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable, or who died in active service, not as the result of willful misconduct.” 38 U.S.C. § 101 (2), 38 CFR § 3.1(d) 2006.

An eligible veteran must demonstrate a service-connected disability in order to qualify for veteran’s disability compensation benefits. A service-connected disability is a disability that resulted from or was made worse by injuries or diseases that happened while on active duty or training, or inactive duty training.

Total disability based on individual unemployability exists when a person suffers from any disabling medical condition of mind or body that renders it impossible for the average person to follow a substantially gainful occupation.
