How Are Social Security Disability Claims Evaluated?

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

The Social Security Administration law requires that a person’s physical and mental impairment(s) have to be of such severity that they can not perform their previous work but also can not, considering their age, education and work experience, do any other kind of substantial gainful work which exists in the national economy, regardless of whether such work exists in the immediate area in which they live, or whether a specific job vacancy exists for them, or whether they would be hired if they applied for the job. In laymans terms this means for you to collect Social Security disability benefits you must prove your physical or mental impairments are so severe that it prevents you from doing any of your former jobs and prevents you from doing any other type of work.
