When does the SSA consider someone to be “disabled”?

When considering applications for Indiana Social Security Disability benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) strictly defines “disability” to mean:

  • You cannot do work you did before;
  • You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical conditions; and
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last at least one year.

If you are thinking about applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Social Security Income (SSI) and wonder if you fall into the SSA’s definition of disabled, contact us now.
