What is Total Disability?

Do You Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits?

To qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you must have a "total disability" according to the Social Security Administration's definition. This means that the condition must be severe enough to prevent you from engaging in "substantial and gainful employment."

If you are disabled and your condition prevents you from being able to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. If you have already applied for SSD benefits and have been denied, you can pursue an appeal. It is important to remember that the majority of initial claims are denied. Working with an attorney during the SSD appeals process is recommended.

I am attorney Pamela Levine, and I help clients seek the disability benefits they need after a condition or illness has left them unable to work. To talk to an attorney about your disability benefit options, contact my law office today.

If your initial application for disability benefits has been denied, I can help you pursue an appeal. I know what standards the Social Security Administration uses to determine total disability. I can help you pursue an appeal based on that information for any disabling condition:

Some companies that assist people with Social Security Disability issues use nonattorneys whose fees are the same as an attorney's. At Levine Law, LLC, you will always work with a SSD attorney.
