Social Security Disability explained
Social Security only pays for what it considers to be total, not partial, disabilities. Under SSA rules, you are only totally disabled if:
You are not engaging in substantial gainful activity
You cannot do the work you did before
The SSA, in some situations, decides you cannot do other work because of your disability
Your disability is expected to last for at least one year or result in death
What qualifies as a disability is not always clear, making it important to consult with an experienced lawyer, even if you were originally denied benefits.
