BOISE, ID – Am I Disabled? That is a question that most everyone who contacts our Boise disability lawyers office about disability wants answered. Well, the simple answer that most disability lawyers will give you is that you are disabled if your symptoms and limitations prevent you form working for 12 months, or can be reasonably expected to keep you from working for 12 months.
But it gets a lot more complicated than that. Every case is slightly different, so Social Security disability has been carefully defined using thousands of pages of statutes, regulations, guidelines and case law. A good disability attorney is familiar with all of these and should be able to quickly determine if your disability application is viable, provide he or she has the facts.
Just because you, your spouse, your friends and your family dog know you can’t go back to work does not mean Social Security will find you disabled. Your symptoms and limitations need to be documented by doctors. So the better your records, the better your chances of getting disability. In addition, there are a lot of other factors that affect your chances such as your past work experience, your age, your education, your inability to read or write, etc. This is where an attorney can help.
Age is one of the biggest factors. There are two magic ages to consider when applying for Social Security Disability– 50 and 55. If you are over 50 and can’t work, you really need to speak with one of your disability lawyers or bout Social Security disability benefits.
