Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits in Virginia, Maryland or DC


    Want to Know if You Could Get Disability Benefits?

    You can’t work due to a serious health condition. You don’t know when you’ll be able to work again, but you sure wish you could.

    The last thing you wanted was for your income to stop and bills to pile up.

    If you could start receiving Social Security Disability benefits, you would regain some financial footing and get your life back on steady ground. You wouldn’t have to worry so much.

    You just want to know: Do I qualify for Social Security Disability?

    Here are the main Social Security Disability qualifications:

    • You have severe health problems.
    • Your health problems prevent you from working.
    • You can’t work in a past position or any other position.
    • Your health impairments have lasted, or will last, at least one year.
    • You’ve paid enough into the Social Security system to be covered by Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

    It’s not as simple as telling the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you have health issues and you can’t work. Instead, you need to provide proof.

    Have the team at Mathis & Mathis Disability Advocates look at your case. We’ll listen to you, take time to understand what you’re going through and take over the work involved with applying for disability benefits.

    If you live in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Alexandria and Northern Virginia, all over Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania—and all around America, contact Mathis & Mathis now.

    Will My Condition Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits?

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a list of impairments that can qualify you for benefits as well as guidelines on how to prove your claim with each one.

    But numerous physical and mental health conditions can qualify you for benefits, not just the ones on the list.

    At Mathis & Mathis, we help people with these conditions and more:

    The type of disability benefits you could receive will also depend on your work situation.

    Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) covers you when you’ve worked and paid a substantial amount in Social Security taxes. These are benefits you earn by working, not government handouts.

    If your income, assets and work history are lower, you could receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

    Proof for Your Social Security Disability Claim

    How do you prove your health impairments are so severe that you can’t work?

    Show the SSA evidence like this:

    • Doctors’ records from your exams
    • Results from your medical tests
    • Medical imaging documents
    • Treatment plans for your health issues
    • Lists of prescriptions you take
    • Statements from people who know you and see how your health has impacted your life

    But don’t exhaust yourself trying to put all this together. The disability advocates at Mathis & Mathis can do that for you.

    Here’s even more reason to work with a professional disability advocate: most people get denied when they first apply for benefits, so you don’t want to risk mistakes.

    You PAY NO FEE for a disability advocate until you win benefits. We’re here to fight for your independence and dignity.
