Qualifying and Applying for Disability Benefits in Alabama
The most important step is determining if you qualify for benefits. You are deemed eligible if you have worked in a job covered by Social Security and if your medical condition meets the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) definition of disability.
According to the SSA, you are considered disabled if:
- You cannot do the work you did before
- You cannot adjust to new work because of your disability
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last at least one year or result in death
You can apply for SS benefits online or over the phone. If your application is approved, your benefits continue until you can work again on a consistent basis. The SSA regularly reviews cases to confirm that you are still disabled and to update certain aspects of your benefits.
