To get Social Security, you have to have a mental or physical condition that has kept you or will keep you from doing any kind of full-time job for a year or more.
People sometimes tell us, “Well, I’m not totally bedridden.” But you don’t have to be bedridden or totally incapacitated to be disabled under Social Security law. If your disability keeps you from doing any kind of full-time job on a long-term basis, then you are disabled under Social Security law.
People who have chronic pain are often unable to work because their pain keeps them from being able to focus well enough to complete work tasks. Also, people who have chronic pain or fatigue may have good days and bad days. They might be able to work eight hours one day but not the next day.
If you have missed a lot of work or had to leave work in the middle of the day because of your mental or physical conditions, you might qualify for Social Security. Give us a call for a free consultation.
