Do You Have A Qualifying Condition For SSD Benefits?
To qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits you must be able to demonstrate to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you suffer from a qualifying condition. At Cutter Hall Karlock, LLC, in Columbus, Ohio, we have over 60 years of combined experience working for individuals filing for disability, and take care to help them understand the criteria they must meet in order to receive support.
Which Conditions Are Eligible?
A qualifying condition, according to the SSA, is one that prevents you from working for at least 12 months. There are a wide variety of conditions that render one eligible, including:
- Physical conditions
- Psychological conditions
- Mental conditions
- Orthopedic problems
- Cardiac conditions
- Pulmonary problems
The SSA is looking at you as a whole person, including your main medical condition as well as anything else that presents problems. A combination of all symptoms and conditions could help you meet the requirements for a qualifying SSD condition. This makes it very important that all medical conditions be thoroughly evaluated and documented.
What Evidence Do I Need To Present?
You must be able to prove that your medical condition is so severe it prevents you from doing any full-time work. Proving this, however, can be extremely difficult for individuals unfamiliar with the SSD process.
Our firm has the knowledge and experience in medical and vocational considerations to help you prove that your condition qualifies. We will develop evidence from your sources of medical treatment and present all evidence in a manner most likely to result in a claim being approved.
