What does the SSA mean by medical equivalence?

Social Security Disability Income can sometimes be a confusing prospect for Staten Islanders who are unsure if they meet the criteria. One of the keys to getting SSDI benefits is to have an impairment that is on the Listing of Impairments. However, if the injury, illness or condition does not specifically appear on the listing, people might not realize that they can still get benefits if it is medically equivalent to one that is listed.

What is needed for a Social Security Disability application?

For Staten Islanders who are suffering from a condition that prevents them from working, Social Security Disability Income is important to make ends meet and get the medical treatment they need. However, it is wise to remember that the application process requires evidence that the issue is severe enough to warrant SSDI benefits.

Social Security Disability Income and the five-step evaluation

When a Staten Islander has been injured or become ill and is seeking Social Security Disability Income, it can be a confusing time. The physical and emotional impact of these issues can be stressful and complex. Many do not want to think about the steps they must take to get approved for SSDI. However, knowing the five-step evaluation process the Social Security Administration uses is a foundational aspect of the application process. Throughout a case, it is wise to have legal advice.

Social Security Disability Income and medical reviews

Staten Islanders receiving Social Security Disability Income for an injury or illness might not be aware that the Social Security Administration performs periodic reviews to determine whether the recipient should continue receiving benefits. Since SSDI is for those who are unable to work, the status of the illness or injury is key. Understanding this is a critical part of the benefits process.
