Think You’re Eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits? Check the SSA’s Eligibility Requirements

You may be disabled and unable to work, but you need to prove it to the Social Security Administration (SSA) before gaining eligibility for SSDI benefits. The question is not whether you are disabled, but whether the SSA believes you are disabled. If you are applying for SSDI benefits or appealing a denied claim, an experienced attorney can help you make a compelling argument to the SSA and maximize your chances of success.

The Social Security Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates have a proven record of success obtaining results for people throughout the Southeast. We have the experience to effectively handle all aspects of your SSDI claim or appeal.

Our SSDI lawyers represent people throughout the Southeast.


The eligibility requirements for SSDI benefits are:

  • You must have a qualifying disability that prevents you from doing the work you did previously
  • Your condition must also prevent you from doing other work
  • Your disability must have lasted for at least 12 months or be expected to last for at least 12 months or be a terminal condition

If you are disabled but the SSA has rejected your application, it is important to consult with an experienced SSDI lawyer. We have seen many people who are suffering with real, debilitating medical conditions get turned down for the benefits they need. We have helped many of those people obtain their benefits by representing them in SSDI appeals.
