It can be complicated to fill out Social Security Disability claim as it requires several specific conditions to be met. Fulfilling all the necessary requirements and proving the connection between your health condition and work status is vital to the success of your claim. You will need to show different types of evidence in order to prove Social Security disability in your claim. This will include:
- Medical documentation will need to be provided that proves you sustained an injury that will prevent you from working for at least the next 12 months. You do not have to wait 12 months before you file a claim.
- You will have to prove that you will not be able to return to your past work. As is the nature of Social Security disability claims, the past 15 years of your work history will be examined.. You will need to prove that your injury or illness will prevent you from returning to any job that you have held during the last 15 years.
- You will have to prove that you are also unable to do any other type of work due to your condition. This can be shown through activity limitations that are established by your medical provider. They will determine if your ability to do specific work-related duties would be limited. As an example of this, let us say you have a back injury. You may not be able to hold a job that requires you to be on your feet for more than an hour a day. That limitation by your medical provider will show that you are not capable of doing any other work on a continuing basis and that will support your claim with disability.
