Are you in a situation where you have been forced to stop work due to a disabling injury? Has the injury caused you so much anguish as to not afford you the health to do gainful employment of any kind? If so, and you have the worked years to qualify, a Disability Attorney in Tupelo, MS says you may have a good case to get approved for Social Security disability. There are some qualifying factors you need to understand about Social Security disability that differs from any other disability approvals you might get, such as from a job.
Social Security only pays for total disability. If your disability is a partial or short term, you would not qualify under the definition of disability used by the Social Security Administration. To qualify you must be unable to do the work you were doing before and Social Security must determine that you are unable to do any other work due to your condition. It is very important to understand those qualifying conditions. Some other requirements you must meet are as follows:
* If you are between the ages of 31 and 54, you must have worked for five of the last ten years, although they do not have to be consecutive.
* If you are disabled between the ages of 24 and 30, you must have worked at least half of the time after your 21st birthday and up to the point of your disability.
* You have a durational requirement for your disability which means it must be expected last for at least 12 months or expected to result in your death.
These are just a few of the stringent requirements of the Social Security Administration for your disability.
