How Does Social Security Define Disability?

Connecticut SSD Appeal Lawyer

The Social Security definition of disability is based on your inability to work for a long period of time. You are considered disabled and eligible  if you meet the following conditions:

  • You are not working at all or earning less than $1,220 per month
  • Your condition is so severe that it interferes with work-related activities you must perform to do your job
  • You are unable to do the work you did prior to becoming disabled
  • You are not able to perform other types of work that your background may have prepared you to perform

It is vital to note that this is a simple explanation and does not take into account special situations that may make you eligible for disability benefits even if you have not fulfilled all the above conditions.

If you have been denied for SSD or SSI benefits in Connecticut, and you are aged 50or older, call us.  We can help.  There is no fee unless we successfully get you your Social Security Benefits.
