Social Security Disability Requirements
According to data from the Social Security Administration on disability benefits, a 20-year-old worker has a 1 in 4 chance of becoming disabled before reaching full retirement age.
There are two different earning tests that you must meet in order to get disability benefits:
1. A recent work test, based on your age at the time you became disabled.
2. Duration of work test to show that you worked long enough under Social Security.
You will need to submit additional documents, such as medical records, lab results, and the contact information for doctors who treated you, as part of the application process to be considered for your much-needed benefits.

Let the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Help You Appeal Your Case
It can take as long as three to five months to hear the status of your application. If your claim is denied, you have 60 days upon denial of your claim to file an appeal. There are four levels of appeal as defined by the Social Security Administration:
- An administrative law judge hearing
- Disability Appeals Council review
- Federal court review
If you disagree with the council’s decision, or if the council decides not to review your case, you can file a civil suit in order to trigger the federal court review process. This is the last possible step in the appeals process.
