If you work long enough at a job that is covered under the provisions of the Social Security Act, and you become disabled, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. Under the Social Security Administration, a disability can be physical, emotional, or a combination of both. In order for you to receive benefits, you must have a disability which is severe enough to prevent you from working in any regular paying job for at least 12 consecutive months.
The test for Social Security Disability benefits is whether you are physically and emotionally capable of doing a job that is generally available in the national economy. To obtain Social Security Disability benefits, you must have a doctor state that you are disabled. The doctor’s opinion should be supported by laboratory tests and/or clinical findings. Because many genuinely disabling conditions are difficult to diagnose by objective testing, it is up to your attorneys to present your doctor’s reports and findings properly in order to convince the government that you are entitled to receive Social Security Disability benefits.
If you or a loved one has been denied Social Security benefits that you rightfully should receive, turn to Turner & Turner to protect your rights.
