How Do I Apply For Disability?
When we are healthy, none of us seem to think about
Social Security will pay disability payments to people that are unable to work due to a medical condition that is expected to last for a minimum of one year or that is expected to result in the patient’s death. This is the strict definition of how Social Security will make payments. Some programs will pay for partial disability, but Social Security does not.
You will also need to meet the following work related tests: a record of recent work based on your age at the time of the disability, and a duration of work record that shows that you have worked enough in order to collect the disability. You should also contact your local Social Security disability package. This application can take a long time to process, so apply right away. You will need to fill out a variety of forms, and you doctor will also need to supply medical records and proof of the disability.
