Tulsa Social Security Disability Lawyers
Are you facing the challenging maze of Social Security Disability Administration rules and regulations? You’re not alone. The path to securing the benefits you deserve can be overwhelming, but Elias & Elias Law Firm is here to simplify the journey for you.
Understanding Social Security Eligibility
The Social Security Disability Administration maintains stringent criteria for individuals seeking disability benefits. To qualify, you must meet the following conditions:
Inability to Work: Your physical or mental disability should prevent you from engaging in substantial gainful activity (working and earning a paycheck) for an extended period, typically lasting 12 continuous months or ending in death.
Impairment: Your disability must significantly limit your ability to perform work. This determination relies on medical opinions and examinations by both your doctor and SSA doctors.
Medical Eligibility: Your medical records will be assessed to see if your disability matches any of the listed impairments.
Previous Employment: If you can still perform your previous job, your claim may be denied. An SSA doctor will evaluate your capabilities and work capacity.
Work Capacity: Assuming you pass the previous steps, SSA will assess if you can perform any other type of employment, considering factors like age, work history, education, and gender.
Simplified Eligibility for Older Individuals
Age can significantly impact your eligibility for disability benefits. SSA has made it more accessible for older individuals to qualify:
Between ages 40 and 49: Approximately a 42% approval rate.
Ages 50-54: A 49% approval rate.
Ages 55-59: A 57% approval rate.
Ages 60-65: The highest approval rate at 62%.
