Physical Disabilities and SSD/SSI Benefits
POSTED BY Jon C. . April 9, 2014
One major reason that such a high number of applicants for Social Security disability benefits are denied is because there are certain types of physical disability cases that are difficult to prove.
To qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
benefits, the applicant must medically prove that he or she has a condition that prevents him or her from working — and that the condition will last for 12 months or longer.
For some specific types of SSD or SSI applications based on physical disability, it can be difficult to obtain the necessary medical records to show that the physical disability will prevent the applicant from working.
The experienced lawyers at Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, have extensive experience handling SSD and SSI cases on behalf of individuals with a variety of physical disabilities, including:
- Heart disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Back pain
- Gastrointestinal illness
- Crohn’s disease
- Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
- Chronic pain syndrome (CPS)
- Rheumatoid arthritis
If you have a complex physical disability and are interested in applying for SSD or SSI, it makes sense to seek early legal help from a law firm that focuses almost exclusively on SSD and SSI applications.
