Applying for Social Security Disability Benefits in North Alabama

Whether or not the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers you eligible for Social Security Disability benefits depends on if you meet the agency's definition of "disabled." Social Security will only pay for total disability, not partial disability. The SSA will only consider you disabled if:

  • You're unable to do work you've done before;
  • The agency determines you can't adjust to other work because of your physical and/or mental condition(s); and
  • Your disability is expected to last for at least 12 months (or result in death).

Social Security will only pay for total disability, not partial disability.

Why Is Applying for Benefits so Hard?

Most people think that if they simply explain their circumstances to Social Security, someone will understand and start cutting them benefits checks. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work that way.

Applying for disability benefits is a complicated legal process. You must meet the SSA's definition of "disabled."

Why Are Most People Denied Benefits?

There are thousands of rules, regulations and procedures involved in the Social Security Disability program. You can be turned down if your doctor doesn't understand the definition of disability, or if a Social Security employee doesn't gather all of your medical evidence. You can also receive a denial if your appeal isn't handled correctly.
