What Is "Disability"?
Simply put, disability under Social Security is the inability to work.
Many People are surprised to learn that disability is not a medical standard, but is rather a legal standard combining medical and vocational considerations.
The standard of disability can change depending on age, education, past work, literacy, and other factors.
Disability under Social Security is different from other programs that pay only for "total" disability.
Do I Qualify?
The main question is whether your health problems prevent you from holding a job. As for the types of health problems that might qualify for Social Security disability, the list is practically endless.
Some examples are as follows.
How Do I Apply?

What Are SSI And SSDI?
What types of Social Security disability benefits are there?
The government decides your benefits based on either your work record or your financial need. Generally speaking, if you've worked enough and paid enough in Social Security taxes, you may qualify for Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI) if you are found disabled. If you have very limited income and assets, then you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
The medical requirements for both programs are exactly the same.
How Can My Lawyer Help?
The system can be overwhelming for those going it alone. Applying for disability benefits can be difficult, and more than two-thirds of people who apply are denied by Social Security. Of those who appeal, roughly 85% are denied. The reality is that the Social Security disability system is fraught with pitfalls and involves thousands of rules, regulations, and procedures. You can be denied benefits if your doctor doesn't know the legal definitions of disability, or if Social Security doesn't obtain evidence altogether if an appeal is handled improperly.
What Can't a Lawyer Do for Me?
Let's be clear: No lawyer in the country can push around the federal government, eliminate certain unfortunate delays, or change the law. In other words, the system - be it for better or worse- is the system.
While an experienced Social Security disability lawyer can make the system work for you, and can certainly make the difference between, winning and losing in certain cases, your lawyer will have to work within the Social Security disability system laws to get your case approved.
