With more than 75 years of legal experience, we have the knowledge and resources to help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits
The Social Security Administration (SSA) pays disability benefits under two distinct government programs, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Both of these programs offer financial support to disabled individuals who can no longer work.
There are several physical and mental impairments that can qualify an individual for Social Security benefits, including:
- Respiratory illnesses
- Mental disorders
- Immune system disorders
- Skin disorders
- Organ disease or failure
- Neurological disorders
- Cardiovascular conditions
- Vision and hearing loss
Not only must you have a qualifying impairment but your medical condition must also meet specific criteria. For example, in order for an individual who is suffering from a coronary artery issue to be eligible, the left main coronary artery must be narrowed at least 50 percent or more. Those who meet such requirements may file for SSDI or SSI benefits.
Appealing a Social Security Disability Denial
If your application for SSDI or SSI has been rejected, it is not the end of the road. Typically, you have 60 days from the date you received the notice of the SSA’s decision to file an appeal.
There are four levels of appeal for Social Security disability decisions, including:
- An ALJ hearing
- An Appeals Council review
- A Federal Court review
To learn more about the various levels of appeals or to begin the appeals process, reach out to our Albuquerque Social Security disability representative at The Threet Law Firm. We can make sure that your appeal is filed properly and on time.
