You have lost your job and think you cannot work. Can you turn to social security disability?

Your age: Social Security makes it very difficult for a young person to become disabled. Who is a young person? Social Security classifies anyone under age 50 in the youth category. However, even if you are in the 50-54 category, it will still be difficult to become disabled, but if you are 55 or older, it will become easier. it gets even easier if you’re 60 or older.

Your previous work: Your past employment can be very important when it comes to disability. If all you’ve done in the past is manual labor and you can’t do it anymore, this could give you a strong argument depending on your age. On the other hand, if you have been doing light sedentary work such as secretarial work for the past 15 years, you will have a hard time becoming incapacitated.

Your skills and education: If you are a highly skilled and educated worker, this could pose a problem for your disability case. Social Security looks at transferable skills. If you have great skills, even if you can’t do your current job, your skills can be transferred to a lighter job that you can do. At your court hearing, Social Security will have a vocational expert present who can testify whether your skills will transfer to a light or sedentary job.

Your disability must be permanent: If you have had a car accident or major surgery, you may be currently “disabled” by your disability, but this does not end the study. You still need to show that your disability will last more than 12 months to have a good disability case.

Medical support for your disability: You lost your job. You are fired. You can’t find a job. You have an illness or a medical disability. This is helpful, but unless your healthcare providers support your disability claim, you still don’t have a good disability case. In addition, if you have a certain medical disability, you need a specialist in that field to treat you and to assess your fitness for work. You may be examined by Social Security doctors, but those examinations are fleeting in nature and they rarely find a person with a disability.

In summary, these are the five critical factors I look at when determining if you have a good disability case.
