Oregon Social Security Disability

Do You Qualify?


The Social Security Administration uses a five-step deductive analysis to determine whether or not an applicant qualifies for SSDI or SSI. A Social Security Disability attorney will give you more specific details on your possible qualification. Read on to discover whether or not you may be eligible to apply for SSDI benefits.

Notice these five requirements for SSDI:

  1. If you are currently working and earning approximately $1,200 per month, you do not qualify 
  2. If you are not currently working and have a severe impairment that significantly interferes with your ability to work and that has lasted or will last at least 12 months, you may qualify
  3. If your impairment is listed and acknowledged by the SSA, you may qualify
  4. If your severe impairment prevents you from performing your past work, you may qualify 
  5. If your impairment prevents you from performing any work, then you are considered to be disabled and may thus qualify for benefits 

Your impairment and disability will need to be proved with medical evidence if the SSA is to accept your claim. It is important that you receive medical treatment and documentation in order to prove your case.

We know that it may be overwhelming, but at our law firm in Eugene, OR, our lawyers for disability are here to put you first and help you every step of the way. A Social Security Disability lawyer is standing by to answer your questions in a free consultation – call us at (541) 255-4546.

What is Social Security Disability?

When a person is unable to work due to physical or psychological limitations, he or she may be considered to be “disabled” by the Social Security Administration. Disabled people are eligible to receive financial benefits to support them and their families.

Benefits from Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability benefits can provide essential financial support to individuals with disabilities. These benefits include:

  • Monthly Cash Payments: Recipients receive monthly payments based on their average lifetime earnings before they became disabled.
  • Medicare Coverage: After receiving SSD benefits for 24 months, beneficiaries become eligible for Medicare, which helps cover medical expenses.
  • Dependent Benefits: In some cases, dependents of SSD recipients, such as spouses or children, may also be eligible for benefits.
  • Social Security Disability FAQ's

    What medical conditions qualify for SSD benefits?

    In Oregon, as in the rest of the United States, Social Security Disability benefits are not contingent upon specific medical conditions. Instead, the Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluates disability claims based on the severity of the individual’s impairment(s) and their impact on the ability to work.

    These conditions cover a wide range of physical and mental health impairments, including but not limited to:

    1. Musculoskeletal disorders, such as arthritis, back injuries, and spinal disorders.
    2. Neurological disorders, including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
    3. Cardiovascular conditions, such as heart failure and chronic heart disease.
    4. Respiratory disorders, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis.
    5. Mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.
    6. Immune system disorders, including HIV/AIDS, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
    7. Digestive system disorders, such as Crohn’s disease, liver disease, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
    8. Sensory impairments, including vision and hearing loss.
    9. Cancer and other malignant diseases.
    10. Endocrine disorders, such as diabetes and thyroid disorders.

    It’s important to note that meeting the criteria for a listed impairment does not automatically guarantee approval for disability benefits. If you need help understanding if you qualify, call us today.
