What Is Required for a Successful Disability Claim?
A person who claims Social Security Disability/SSI must prove that he or she is disabled. But who is "disabled"? The Social Security Administration says that a person is disabled if he or she has a physical or mental condition or a combination of impairments that keeps him or her from working at some kind of employment that brings in more than $740 per month. If you are making a claim, this is what you must be able to prove.
It sounds easy, but that definition is actually quite a difficult one to meet. For example:
- You will be considered disabled only if you are unable to do any work, not just that you are unable to do your usual job.
- You must have solid medical evidence that proves your physical or mental condition.
- Your physical or mental condition, or a combination of your impairments, must be the main reason you are unable to work.
- It is expected that your condition will either last for at least 12 months or will result in death.
