There is a five step process to determine if you are entitled to disability benefits used by the Social Security Administration you must be familiar with.

  • Step #1: Are you working? If you continue to work but earn less a month than the amount the Social Security Administration determines to be substantially gainful employment you can still receive social security disability benefits.
  • Step #2: Is your illness severe? To be severe your medical condition must last or be expected to last at least twelve (12) months and impose disabling limitations on your ability to perform basic work functions.
  • Step #3: Does your illness meet or equal a medical listing? The Social Security Administration has broken down well over 150 categories of medical conditions for adults and medical conditions for children. If your illness meets or equals one of the listed conditions you would be entitled to receive Social Security Disability payments. If the Social Security Administration does not find your illness meets or equals a specific listing you may still be eligible for disability benefits. The next two steps will be reviewed to determine if you are disabled.
  • Step #4: Are you able to perform any past relevant work? If the Social Security Administration determines even with your illness you can perform your past work as it is normally performed in the national economy, your application for disability benefits will be denied. If the Social Security Administration determines you cannot perform your previous work your claim will proceed to the final step, step #5.
  • Step #5: What other work, if any, can you perform with your illness? To make this determination the Social Security Administration looks at specific combinations of these factors:
    • Age
    • Education
    • Work History

Our Massachusetts social security disability lawyers work through the medical evidence to see if your illness meets or equals one of the social security administrations listings for a finding of disability at step #3. An overwhelming number of cases do not meet these restrictive listings. When this occurs we must develop your claim around your restrictions that result from your mental or physical illness. If we can prove your restrictions prevent you from performing any past work or other substantial work your application for disability benefits will be approved.

Once approved you will receive either Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits, under certain circumstances you will be approved for both.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a system of monthly benefits paid to you when you are found to be disabled, have limited assets and no significant work history or current work quarters. The amount paid to you is the same throughout the United States. This amount is subject to change each year based upon the cost of living.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a system of monthly benefits paid to you when you are found disabled with the required history of current work quarters. SSDI benefits are also payable to certain family members, such as your minor children. The amount paid is based on the amount of taxes you have paid over your work history. Therefore, the monthly disability benefit will vary from person to person.
