Most people in the San Diego area are aware that they can receive benefits from the Social Security Administration, but they are unsure about the exact definition of "disability.' In this post, we will review the definitions of "disabled" and "disability" that are used in deciding on an application for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
Many people in the San Diego area have illnesses or injuries that prevent them from working, and most persons in this group are aware that they may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. The process for obtaining an award of social security disability benefits can seem long, confusing and in many cases frustrating. In this post, we will provide a summary of the methods that can be used to prove a claim for disability benefits. The first step is the submission of the SSDI application form. The form asks the applicant to submit information that the Social Security Administration can use to decide whether the applicant meets the statutory requirements of being totally disabled by an illness or injury that has or is expected to last at least 12 months.
