How does the Social Security Administration define disability?

Holding down a stable job and earning an income that supports one's family are badges of honor for many Bremen residents. Although work can be tough, and not always the most desired activity for a person to engage in, many people are proud of the tasks they complete for their employers and the contributions that they make when performing the responsibilities of their occupations.

Unfortunately, though, not everyone who wants to work can work. This is because some individuals suffer from physical and mental disabilities that prevent them from being able to work in a gainful way. Under the disability benefits program through the Social Security Administration, however, qualifying individuals may be able to receive financial support that helps them live their lives despite their inabilities to perform work-related tasks.

To qualify for this benefits program a person must be disabled. By the rules of the Social Security Administration, a disability is something that keeps a person from engaging in substantial gainful activity. The disability may impact the person's mental capacity or their physical capabilities and it must be of such a nature that it has affected the person for at least twelve months, is expected to last at least that long, or that will cause the death of the individual.

When a person applies for Social Security disability benefits, he or she generally must provide medical documentation that shows that the condition meets the requirements of the Social Security Administration's definition of disability. As every applicant's situation is different, it is important that readers seek their own advice about applying, and not rely on the contents of this post as legal counsel. Preparing an application for these benefits can be complex, and it is often the case that applicants seek the counsel of attorneys who provide Social Security legal services when they decide to pursue these often life-changing benefits.
