Social Security Disability Attorney Helena, Alabama
According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), the definition of disability under Social Security is different than other programs. SSA pays only for total disability and not for partial disability or for short-term disability. Under SSA's rules, you are considered disabled if you meet the following requirements:
- You cannot do the type of work that you did before
- You have worked and paid into Social Security, earning sufficient work credits
- The SSA decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s)
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death
To decide whether you are defined as disabled according to the SSA, the advocates at Alabama Law Services, LLC can go over each Social Security Disability requirement with you and help you handle your SSD claim.
