You are disabled and cannot work. Do you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits?
A serious accident can suddenly leave you unable to work. You may be paralyzed or disabled in some way. You may have suffered from head trauma, a spinal cord injury, or other long-term injury. The doctor says you may not be able to return to work for a long time—maybe even never again.
So, what happens now? How will you get money to pay for your medical treatment on top of all your bills? Social Security Disability benefits can help. This program pays monthly benefits to disabled people who meet all the requirements.
However, the process is not easy. There are strict rules and regulations involved. Most people are denied the first time around because they do not understand all that is required. Here is what you need to qualify.

You Need to be Disabled
You may think you are disabled, and your doctor may agree, but ultimately, you need to meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability. A disability is defined as a physically or mentally disabling condition that is terminal or expected to last at least one year. The condition must be medically diagnosed and prevent you from working.
You Need to Include Medical Information
The application will ask for details about your medical condition. You will need to provide the contact information of your doctors so that the Social Security Administration can verify the information. You will also need to include the names of your medications as well as any medical tests you have had done.

You Need to Include Employment Information
The application will also ask about your employment history, such as employer names and contact information as well as salary information. That is because you will need enough work credits to qualify. The number of work credits you need depends on your age. If you were in the military, you will also need to provide details about your time in the service.

You Need to Provide Documentation
Along with your application, you will need to provide documentation of your identity and medical condition. Be prepared to provide a birth certificate or proof of U.S. citizenship. You should also include W-2 and tax returns as well as any medical evidence you have, such as medical records, reports, and test results. If you received any workers’ compensation benefits, you will need to provide proof.
Getting approved for Social Security Disability benefits can take many months, so even if you are missing some documentation, you should apply as soon as you become disabled.
