If you can't work and have a disability on Social Security's list of disabling impairments, you may qualify for disability benefits that replace your income until you reach retirement age. Most jobs require the ability to sit or stand for up to six hours out of an eight hour day and all jobs require the physical stamina to sustain a forty hour work week. If you cannot complete a forty hour work week due to your physical impairments, you should apply for disability benefits.
SOCIAL SECURITY'S LIST OF PHYSICAL DISABILITIES
If you do not see your physical impairment listed below, don't think you can't apply for benefits. You can. You may have a rare disability or a combination of impairments that qualifies you for benefits because you cannot work. Sometimes, physical disability makes it impossible to sustain work on a full-time basis and you may have tried to work for short periods of time, but were fired or let go for poor job performance due to pain, injury, or needing to take too many breaks. These kinds of problems are evidence of an inability to work due to physical disability and you may qualify for SSD or SSI benefits. The Social Security Administration will require you to prove that you have a disability. You will need to obtain objective medical evidence from a physician to prove the severity of your physical disability and a lawyer can help you with this and developing the legal theory in your case. Please call our office, because we can often tell you over the phone if you have a valid disability case.
