How Do I Pick the Right Date for the “Onset of Disability?”

The alleged onset of disability “AOD” is a term in the Social Security world. It is the date from which your entitlement to Social Security Disability benefits starts. That includes a five-month elimination period.

The onset of disability is the first date when you are unable to engage in what is called substantial gainful activity. Substantial gainful activity is also a term under the Social Security rules which means what date could you last worked a forty hour week without significant interruptions for symptoms and/or for treatment and no matter how sick you were, no matter how many days you worked, were you able to make $980 per month? You have to figure out the date when you were unable to engage in substantial gainful activity and earn less than $980.

Unfortunately, picking the wrong date of disability can result in your claim being denied. Getting a proper listing of onset of disability is important and Sharon Barrett, Social Security Disability attorney suggests that you consult with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney to assist you in picking the right date of disability.
