  • 2It's determined you're unable to adjust to other work because of your physical and/or mental condition(s); and
  • 3Your disability is expected to last for at least 12 months (or result in death).

Social Security only pays total disability, not partial disability.

Is Applying for Benefits Hard?

You may think it’s simple to win benefits. You may think if you simply explain your situation to Social Security,
someone will understand and start giving you a monthly benefits check. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.

Applying for disability benefits is a complicated legal process. You must meet the SSA’s definition of “disabled.”

Are Most People Who Apply Denied?

Unfortunately, yes. There are thousands of rules, regulations and procedures involved in the Social Security Disability program. You can be turned down if a Social Security employee doesn’t collect all of your medical evidence or if your doctor doesn’t understand the definition of disability. You can also be denied if your appeal isn’t handled properly.
