There are certain requirements that must be met in order to qualify for Social Security Disability. The Social Security Administration only grants benefits to qualifying individuals who have suffered a serious injury or are battling a major illness. If you believe you qualify for benefits, contact our experienced lawyers to discuss your case.

In order to receive Social Security Disability benefits, you must have paid Social Security taxes for a substantial amount of time. If you have been working for at least 10 years, you must have paid taxes for at least 5 of those 10 years. In addition, you must also have an illness or injury that prevents you from holding any type of work. There must also be proof that this injury or illness exists, usually in the form of medical documentation provided by your doctor.
Lastly, the application for benefits must be filed with the Social Security Administration within 5 years from the date you stopped working. If you are unsure whether or not you qualify for benefits, our Social Security Disability lawyers can help review your case and determine whether or not you are eligible. Because of these requirements, time is crucial, so it is best to get in contact with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
