Some of the more common mental disabilities that prevent workers from continuing their careers, and for which we are ready to help you are: Anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, mental retardation, personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The Many Factors Considered For SSDI And SSI
While both SSDI and SSI are programs administered by the federal Social Security Administration, for most recipients, the medical requirements are identical. The difference is that SSI disability benefits are additionally based on financial needs.
To receive benefits under either the SSDI or SSI program, an applicant must prove that a physical or mental health problem, or a combination thereof, is severe enough to keep them from working in a regular paying job for a minimum of one year.
The test is not whether a worker is able to go back to their previous job or whether any employer is likely to hire them for another opening. Rather, it is whether someone is capable of performing any job available nationwide. By using an extensive set of regulations, the Social Security Administration considers the following factors: the subject’s medical condition, age, abilities, training and work experience.
There is much more to know about this area of the law. We encourage you to consult one of our Taylorsville lawyers so that we can understand your situation as thoroughly as possible. It is important to note that many valid Social Security Disability claims are routinely denied as a matter of course. The Social Security Administration counts on the fact that many applicants will be discouraged after one try. That is where the trusted counsel of an attorney from 828-600-7462, can level the playing field.
Once we are retained, one of our attorneys will file a request for reconsideration. If your request is denied, we will then request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). If we need to appeal, we will be ready to take your case to the Social Security Appeals Council and, ultimately, to federal court.
