Determining Your Eligibility
The process requires an application with accompanying medical documentation and proof of disability. The determination for eligibility has 5 steps,
- Are you working? If you work and make $1000 or more per month, you normally won't be considered for disability.
- Do you have a severe impairment? If your condition interferes with basic work related activities then you can be considered for disability.
- Is your condition found on the SSA list of disabling conditions? For each of the major body systems, the Social Security Administration has a list of disabling conditions.
- If your condition is NOT on the list, can you do the work you did previously? If your condition is severe but not on the list, the SSA must determine if you can still work as you did considering your impairment.
- Can you do any other type of work? If you cannot do the work you did in the past, the SSA will consider you disabled if there is any other type of work you can do.
