In order to collect social security disability, individuals must qualify for it. Some of the requirements are proof that you are unable to work due to an existing disability and a demonstration that the disability you have is physical or psychological. Once this information is provided, the social security department will review your injury to see if it is one of the ones listed that qualify individuals for social security disability. If you can prove that you are on that list, then you may be able to qualify. The proper medical evidence is needed to verify that you are unable to work due to this impairment, whether it be physical or psychological.
If individuals do not have a disability that is on the list of impairments the department usually refers to, then they may have to undergo an investigation. This may include a review of your work history to assess what you do and how your present disability can affect your line of work. It may also include a review of your medical history and your age to determine if you are eligible. To qualify for social security disability, you will have to previously have worked for a set number of years during your lifetime. The number of years will vary depending on your age. The Social Security Administration will have records of this information. However, you have the right to challenge these findings. Individuals who apply for social security disability must be under the age of 65 to qualify. Those who are over the age of 65 should apply for standard requirement social security benefits instead.
