How can I get Social Security disability benefits?

When can I get Social Security disability? How do I receive benefits? These may have been questions you have asked yourself and are important questions to have answers to. The answers can be helpful to allow disabled individuals to seek the Social Security disability benefits they need.

To begin with, to qualify for benefits, the disabled individual applying for benefits must have the necessary work history in jobs that paid into Social Security. Once the disabled applicant meets the work history requirement, which requires that the work history be both long enough and recent enough, they must also meet the disability requirement and then may be able to receive monthly disability benefits.

To be considered disabled, the applicant for benefits must be unable to work because of the medical condition they suffer from, which is so severe it prevents them from working, and they must be unable to perform any other type of work because of the medical condition they suffer from. In addition, the medical condition they suffer from must be expected to last a year or longer or result in death. Social Security also maintains a list of disabling conditions but disabled individuals who suffer from a medical condition not on the list can take heart that benefits may be available in other circumstances as well for medical conditions not on the list.

Disabled individuals will be required to submit medical records verifying the medical condition they suffer from and their disability. It is helpful for disabled individuals seeking Social Security disability benefits to be organized and understand the process so they can receive the benefits they may badly need.
