Understanding the Qualification Process for Social Security Disability Benefits
Qualifying for Social Security disability benefits, also known as Title II, requires meeting certain criteria. Multiple factors are considered during this process, including:
- Physical and/or mental issues preventing you from working for a minimum of 12 months
- An inability to engage in any reasonable job
- Your age
- Your level of education
- Your past work experience
The Social Security disability benefits are something you’ve contributed to through your earnings over the years. The benefits you are entitled to are based on the decade or more of work you’ve put in before becoming disabled. At the Law Office of Russell Bowling, we strive to ensure that clients receive the benefits they have duly earned.

Understanding the Qualification Process for Supplemental Security Income
In addition to SSD benefits, you might also qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), also known as Title XVI. Unlike SSD benefits, the eligibility for SSI is based on need, meaning you might be eligible for SSI even if you haven’t worked previously.
