What Does Social Security Consider A Disability?
Posted in: Social Security Disability on August 29th, 2011

social security disabilityIf you are applying for either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, be sure to understand what the Social Security Administration considers a disability.  Many people actually get through the Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income process only to be stymied by the fact that the Social Security Administration does not consider their “disability” as such.  Understanding the definitions will help you in figuring out if you are eligible or not!

What Makes A Person Disabled?

Generally, disability in this definition is considered a person’s inability to work.  You are considered disabled if you are unable to work at the same capacity as you were before an injury or illness.  There are certain conditions that will help you get on a “fast track” to disability benefits, but any illness or injury that renders you unable to work can be considered a disability.

It can help to call the Social Security Administration and check if your condition is considered a disability and to learn more about the kinds of paperwork that are required to prove your inability to work.  Understanding what is required of you when you are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income will make your life a lot easier in the long run, so be sure to read the fine print and ask a lot of questions before putting the time and effort and energy into applying!  The more you understand about the process now, the easier it is later.
