When applying for disability benefits, Social Security must determine if the combined effect of all your impairments renders you disabled, regardless of whether any impairment individually would. We filed an application last September for a 60 year old project manager from Medford that illustrates this point.
The claimant’s case was initially denied, even though we submitted strong evidence that her cervical spine impairment made desk work near impossible. However, shortly after we submitted evidence demonstrating that claimant’s hip problems limited her ability to stand and walk, which is required by work that is not sedentary, disability benefits were approved.
Claimants frequently neglect to provide information about medical problems because it is not the main issue. However, any impairment that results in any limitation can be important.
Retaining a disability attorney should be a top priority if you are planning on applying for Social Security Disability benefits. Applying for SSD requires strategy and expert knowledge of what is needed to be approved. It is not a simple process, and can be very stressful, especially when you are suffering from medical problems. We can take that burden off of your shoulders. You can call our office for a free phone consultation. We have offices located in Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island.Previous Next
