If you hope to win Social Security disability benefits, you must speak Social Security’s language and give them the evidence and information they require. When you hear that someone has become disabled, your first thought is likely “what are his/her medical problems?”
Social Security, however, does not focus solely on medical problems. Instead, Social Security asks how do this person’s medical problems prevent him/her from performing the duties of a simple, entry-level job?
Currently, there are three theories of disability that you can use to prove to Social Security that you or a loved one is disabled as SSA defines that term. You and your lawyer can use one, two or all three of these arguments when you present your case.
These three disability arguments are shown below. Please click on the link to learn more about each one.
