At the Law Office of David Kuznicki, we understand the frustration of trying to determine whether you are eligible for Social Security disability benefits. Our clients have all worked hard for long periods of time at their jobs, and we know it hurts them to be unable to continue working. We will do whatever we can to help you obtain the benefits you are entitled to, so you may continue to provide for your family while you undergo medical treatment for your disability.

Social Security Disability Eligibility Requirements

The first step in obtaining Social Security disability benefits is to determine whether you are considered “disabled” under the Social Security program. A disability under federal Social Security regulations is defined as a medical condition severe enough to prevent you from working and is expected to either last a minimum of one year or result in death. A medical condition is considered severe if either of the two following criteria is met:

  • Your medical condition is listed on the Social Security Administration’s List of Impairments
  • Because of your disability, you are unable to perform the same type of work you did before and you cannot perform any other work based on your medical condition, age, education, past work experience and job skills

If your medical condition is expected to last more than one year (or result in death) and is listed on the Social Security Administration’s List of Impairments, you are automatically entitled to Social Security disability benefits. If your medical condition is not on this list, but you still wish to apply for Social Security disability benefits, the Social Security Administration will examine your application to determine whether your condition is severe enough to be considered disabling. Your condition will be considered a disability if you are unable to perform the same type of work you did before your condition and if you are unable to perform any other work because of your medical condition, age, education, past work experience and job skills.
