Are You Unable To Work Due To A Health Condition? You May Have A Valid Disability Claim.

When you lose your ability to work, it can make it impossible to provide for yourself and your family. If a mental condition, disease or physical impairment prevents you from holding gainful employment, you could qualify for disability income from the Social Security Administration.

Even with a valid claim, however, it can be complex to know if you qualify. It can be helpful for you to understand how the Social Security Administration defines disability. At the California law firm of John Nguyen, Attorney at Law, we offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and answer your questions.

What Counts As A Disability?

You may meet the Social Security Administration's definition of disability if:

  • You have a medical condition that you expect to last for at least 12 months.
  • This medical condition prevents you from continuing with your job or finding alternative forms of employment.

Once you reach age 50, the SSA considers your age when determining whether you can find alternative forms of employment.

One of the most important factors of your disability claim is the inclusion of medical documentation and proof of how your disabling medical condition affects your ability to work. You should not be discouraged if Social Security denies your initial claim. With the help of an experienced attorney, you may be successful at your hearing with a disability law judge.
