Social Security Disability Lawyers In Superior

What Is Social Security Disability?

Those who suffer from a disability or serious medical condition may not be able to return to work and earn a living. This puts financial stress on an individual who is just trying to cope with their condition. Social Security Disability benefits offer financial assistance to those that cannot work due to a disability. These benefits are handled by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

There are two types of SSD benefits:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Who Can Receive Social Security Disability Benefits?

These benefits are reserved for people who can’t work because they have a disability or medical condition that will last at least one year or result in death. Social Security Disability assists those with long-term or fatal conditions; they do not cover short-term disabilities. In some cases, family members of disabled workers can receive benefits.

Applying For Social Security Disability

To apply for Social Security benefits, you file a claim with the Social Security Administration. You can fill out the online application, apply by phone through the SSA’s toll-free number 1-800-772-1213, or set up an appointment at your local Social Security office.

Before you file for benefits, you have to gather information to show your work history and provide proof of your medical condition. The information includes personal identification, employment documentation, and records of medical diagnoses. A full list of required documents can be found on the SSA’s dedicated webpage.

Information you need for the application:

  • Birth certificate and Social Security number
  • Contact information of employers
  • Employment documents like pay stubs and W2s
  • Names and addresses of healthcare providers and hospitals
  • List of medications you are taking for your disability
  • All medical tests, records, and lab results about your condition

List Of Medical Conditions That Qualify

Here is a list of the physical conditions that Social Security Disability may cover.

  • Back and spinal disorders
  • Brain injuries
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Congenital diseases
  • Disorder of the immune system
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Genitourinary conditions
  • Hematological disorders
  • Musculoskeletal conditions
  • Neck Injuries
  • Neurological disorders
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Special senses and speech problems
  • Skin diseases

The government also recognizes the effect that mental, emotional, and psychological impairments have on one’s ability to work. Some of the mental conditions that qualify for Social Security Disability benefits are listed below.

The SSA has the full list of qualifying physical and mental conditions on its website.
