The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses a Five-Step Sequential Evaluation process to determine if you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.
Attorney Nancy L. Cavey can help determine if you qualify for Social Security disability benefits.
The Five-Step Sequential Evaluation asks:
- Are You Working? √
SSA requires that you have a medical condition that will keep or has kept you out of work for at least a year or will result in your death. You don’t qualify for benefits if you are working full time, with average monthly earnings more than $1,090.
- Is Your Medical Condition Severe? √
For the SSA to consider your work-related activities “severe,’’ your medical condition must significantly interfere with basic work-related activities.
- Is Your Medical Condition On the List of Disabling Conditions? √
SSA lists some medical conditions so severe that you are automatically entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. But even if your condition is not on the list or does not meet each and every element of the listed condition, you still can be considered disabled if your condition or a combination of conditions are of equal severity to a listed condition.
