The Social Security Act of 1935 was one of the greatest legislative achievements of the 20th century. It provided financial support to seniors who otherwise would have struggled financially in their latter years. That crowning achievement was only surpassed when the act was amended in 1956 to include disabled Americans. Millions apply for these benefits every year, but more than two-thirds of initial applications are denied, leaving many wondering how they’ll make ends meet.
To secure Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you must prove that you 1) are disabled and 2) cannot do any type of work, not just your preferred occupation. For example, if you are a mechanic and become disabled, you only qualify for SSD if you can prove that you are unable to do any job, even something like collecting tickets at a movie theatre. Proving that level of disability on your own can be extremely difficult, which is why many call an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer for help.
