How to Qualify for Social Security Disability
Often, a person's medical condition is enough to make him or her eligible for Social Security Disability. However, a number of other factors can also be taken into consideration, including:
- Transferable skills
- Permanent physical restrictions
- Job experience
The Social Security Administration will make a decision based only on the evidence it has. This means that the administration contacts your doctor for records and your claim is only as good as the information included in your file. If you have concerns about inaccurate or incomplete information, a knowledgeable attorney may be able to assist you in correcting the problem.
Ohio Social Security Disability Appeals
If your Social Security Disability claim is denied, you have the right to appeal the decision. At Calhoun, Kademenos & Childress, one of our lawyers can help you request a hearing and take you through the appeal process.
If you are young, you may still qualify for Social Security Disability. Sometimes injuries can be included even if they are temporary, such as a coma.
Social Security Disability for People Over 55
If you are age 55 or older and you are unable to work because of a disability, you should consider filing a Social Security Disability claim. You may have fewer transferable skills and the Social Security Administration will take this into consideration in making a determination in your case.
