But what does it mean to be disabled? It's not enough that your doctor has stated you are disabled -- you must prove with medical evidence and your own statements that you cannot do "substantial gainful activity."
What happens after you file a claim for Social Security Disability benefits and you are not immediately granted the benefits you deserve based on your doctor's reports?
I am proud to announce that last year we recovered more than one million dollars in Social Security Disability benefits for our clients.
You may have been injured in an accident and unable to work, or you may have a disease or other medical condition--but to win Social Security Disability benefits you must prove to the Social Security Administration that you are unable to engage in "substantial activity," for at least twelve consecutive months.
If you are on Social Security Disability benefits or are about to file for Social Security Disability benefits because you are disabled, and too disabled for all but a minimum of gainful employment, you need to know that the Social Security Administration will be making changes for the coming year.
