Do I Have a Case?

Do I need to have been injured at work to be eligible for Social Security Disability?

No, a work-related condition is not one of the requirements for receiving Social Security Disability benefits. At BMCQ we represent many SSD clients who have been injured at work and are eligible for Workers’ Compensation, but whose disability is sufficiently long-term as a result of that injury, having lasted more than a year, to make them eligible for SSD as well as Workers’ Compensation.

If I think I have a Social Security Disability claim, what do I need to do?

The first step is to file a claim with the Social Security Administration by filling out an application either online at www.socialsecurity.govor in person at a Social Security Administration office. This claim will be either denied or accepted after a process that may take several months.
