SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY ATTORNEYS IN POTTSVILLE
Fighting for Disabled Pennsylvanians
According to the Disability Benefits Center, roughly 374,000 Pennsylvanians receive Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. In order to qualify for benefits in Pennsylvania, you must meet strict disability and work history requirements as set forth by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
If you live with a disability that prevents you from working, you may qualify for benefits. Because the process of seeking benefits can be complicated, we recommend retaining the services of our Pottsville Social Security disability attorneys. At Metzger Wickersham, we strive to ensure that all qualifying Pennsylvanians receive the support they need.
In order to receive SSD benefits, you must have a legitimate, qualifying disability. The SSA has its own definition of what a disability is – and short-term or partial disabilities do not qualify for benefits.
You are considered disabled under Social Security rules if:
- You are no longer able to perform the work you did before
- You are unable to perform a different type of work because of your condition
- Your disability will last for at least one year or result in death
If your condition is considered a disability according to the SSA, you still must meet a few other requirements, such as having the minimum number of work credits needed to have paid into the SSD system.
