About Social Security Disability
To qualify for Social Security Disability (SSDI), you must be unable to work for a consecutive period of 12 months. People who get benefits typically have very serious medical impairments and disabilities, which have affected their ability to work until they can no longer work at all. People of all ages, who have worked, are eligible to apply for SSDI. If your condition is not one recognized by the law as disabling, it is more likely that you will be able to prove disability in other ways if you are 50 years of age or older.
A key to success is presenting a convincing case about your medical conditions. When we assemble arguments and medical statements, we are helped tremendously by the medical knowledge of Celeste Harris, who is both an experienced lawyer and a former registered nurse.
