Qualifying For Social Security Disability Benefits
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must meet the following criteria:
- You must have a disability that lasts for at least one year or will result in death.
- Your disability prevents you from doing previous work.
- Your disability prevents you from adjusting to a different kind of work.
- You must have worked for a sufficient amount of time based on your age to qualify according to the Social Security Administration’s guidelines.
Applying For SSD Benefits
The most difficult part of qualifying for disability benefits is proving that your disability prevents you from doing any previous or new work.
The Social Security Administration provides a disability benefits brochure that will give you a basic overview of the application and qualification process.
If you have already started the application process, do not be discouraged if you are initially denied.
Appealing Social Security Disability Applications
Social Security Disability applications are often denied and must go through an appeals process. Avoid the frustration and stress of a denied SSD application and contact an experienced attorney who can help.

I was involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, so I contacted the attorney that I had used in a previous case. I explained to them the situation and they advised me that there was no way that I would be able to recover anything so they would not take my case. I then contacted Charles Monnett & Associates and they accepted my case and I am happy to say that their expert staff was able to settle my case with the insurance companies for $128,000.
In October 2010, my pregnant wife and I were in a horrendous accident in Charlotte, NC, caused by a drunk driver. We were struck head on by the driver traveling at nearly 100mph and sustained many life threatening injuries. We lost our unborn baby and were fighting to stay alive ourselves. This is not a time we could even think about an attorney, but fortunately, people we care about found Mr. Monnett! This incredible man visited us in the hospital at our request and made everything so easy for us during such a trying time. There's not another person on earth with whom I would trust such an important endeavor. His experience and knowledge overshadowed the defense by leaps and bounds. Mr. Monnett remained steadfast and confident throughout the process, while ultimately prevailing, it was amazing. I offer my highest recommendation to this great man and his top notch firm.
Charles Monnett was very helpful and lead me through the whole legality of my case. Charles was always available and informative on this process.
