If you have been forced to give up your job due to a disability, you may wish to claim Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). For many first-time claimants, the process can be incredibly daunting. There are a number of reasons that a claims officer may deny your application, including the ability to pursue a career in a new line of work.
There are 14 categories of disabilities that are considered by the Social Security Administration. However, meeting the requirements for impairment is not solely based on the job role you are no longer able to perform. Your work history and any qualifications are also considered when you make an SSDI claim, which could result in the claims officer deciding you are fit for work.
