What has to happen for a person to be considered disabled?

Sometimes, people assume that those on disability don't work to earn that money. The truth is that Social Security disability is a social insurance program. This program is paid for when you work, so if you work for 10 years and then have to go on Social Security disability, you've been paying into the program in exchange for insurance protection. If you can no longer work because of a disability, then the program is there to help you replace some of your lost income. Often the help of an attorney is critical to receiving these deserved benefits.

Social Security's Work History Report Form

In the process of filing for social security disability benefits, claimants are asked to fill out many forms. Some are simple, like a release of information that requires just a signature and witness. Others, like a Work History Report form [SSA-3369-BK] and Function Report-Adult form [SSA-3373-BK] are much more extensive and require a lot of thought and effort for each claimant.
