If you cannot work because of an injury, condition, and illness, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. However, you must apply for benefits through the Social Security Administration, who will determine whether or not you are disabled through examining your medical records and reviewing your paperwork.
Under the SSA’s guidelines, your condition must either last for more than one year or be ultimately fatal. In addition, your age, work experience, education, will also be factored in to their decision. Finally, they will analyze whether you are still able to do certain types of work, such as sedentary work or light work, as opposed to heavy work. You can be certain of whether or not you qualify for SSDI benefits from speaking with a Dallas Social Security Disability lawyer and applying for or appealing your application for benefits.
