What factors does the Social Security Administration consider to determine whether I am disabled and eligible to get disability?

Factors for Social Security Disability

In evaluating whether to approve a Social Security Disability Benefit claim, the Social Security Administration is required to consider your age, education level, work experience over the past 15 years, and the specific disabling conditions you are suffering from.

In short, each claim is individually evaluated and no two claims are alike. An experienced attorney can and should explain to you what will be required to win your individual case given your age, education, prior work experience, and disabilities. In cases I handle, I will sit down with you and explain how each of these factors affect your unique case. I will go over all of your physical and mental conditions and resulting limitations with you. I will then explain how all of these vocational (or job) factors combine to determine your disability outcome.
