When evaluating applications, Social Security uses a complex, five-step process to determine if you are qualified for disability benefits. Social Security will ask questions about your disability and your ability to work, such as:
• Are you working?
• Do you have appropriate medical records to document your impairment?
• Is your medical condition considered disabling?
• Do you have the ability to do the work that you've done in the past?
• Can you perform any other work?
If Social Security thinks that you don't meet these federal disability guidelines, you'll be denied benefits.
