Who Is Eligible for Social Security Benefits?
Over 160,000 individuals benefit from social security disability (SSD)
in Mississippi. While the amount of payment varies from individual to
individual depending on circumstances, the average SSD payment is $969
To qualify for social security disability, you must meet certain medical
and financial requirements. First, you must have a severe, qualifying
physical or mental medical condition.
Common impairments that qualify for disability include:
- Respiratory impairments
- Skin disorders
- Neurological conditions
- Digestive system disorders
- Seeing, hearing, or speaking disorders
- Immune system disorders
- Blood conditions
- Cardiovascular disorders
Second, the condition must last for at least one full year. Finally, the
medical problem must have prevented work activity that could “earn
a substantial and gainful income.”
Getting Your SSD Application Approved
The chances of being denied when you apply for SSD benefits is extremely
high, with 65-70 percent of applicants being rejected. Many individuals
are again denied at the first level of appeal. Chances are you will have
to go to the second level of appeal before you are accepted.
A skilled legal team can help you handle the appeals process with ease
and confidence. Our lawyers can assist you in filing your appeal paperwork,
ensuring that all deadlines are met, and checking the status of your pending claim.
