Social Security Attorney|Disability Defined
Social Security Basic definition of disability – Adult
SSA defines disability as the inability to work due to a physical or mental impairment which can be expected to last for 12 months or result in death. Some people have multiple problems which in combination have the same effect as one severe condition. The side effects of medication can also be a limiting factor for work capacity. SSA will consider all of these issues when deciding your case.
We always recommend that you consult with an experienced professional before contacting SSA for your disability claim.
