Am I entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits in Alabama

The vast majority of disabled persons who apply for Social Security Disability benefits, regardless of their medical condition, are denied disability benefits on their initial application.

In order to be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama, you must meet the Social Security Administration's definition of being disabled. In making this determination, the Social Security Administration follows a five step sequential evaluation process in order; if the Administration determines that you are not disabled at the end of the first step, their evaluation will continue to the next step of the evaluation process until it has been determined that you are either disabled or not. In our last blog we discussed the forth step of the evaluation process, in this blog we will explain step five.

At step five, the Social Security Administration looks to see if your current functional limitations (which they would have already found prevented you from performing past relevant work) prevents you from performing any other work in the regional and national economy which falls within your current functional limitations. If the Administration finds that you are able to perform other jobs in a sufficient number, then you are not disabled, but if they find that you are not able do perform other jobs within your limitation, then a finding of disabled is warranted.

If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama, but you believe that you meet the legal definition of disabled, don't give up. Call Powell and Denny today.
