Trisha will handle your claim with the utmost care and quality that you expect from a legal representative.
The definition of disability under Social Security is different in that Social Security only pays for total disability. You cannot receive benefits for partial or short-term disability.
The SSA considers you disabled if:
- you cannot do the work that you did before;
- the SSA decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition;
- your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.
The program rules assume that the workforce has access to other resources for support during periods of short-term disabilities, including workers' compensation, insurance, savings and investments.
