Social Security is here to help you and your family, but there are strict criteria for meeting the definition of disabil- ity. The definition of disability under Social Security is also different than it is for other programs. We do not pay benefits for partial or short-term dis- ability.We consider you disabled under Social Security rules if:• You can’t do work that you didbefore;• We decide that you cannot adjust toother work because of your medicalcondition(s); and• Your disability has lasted or isexpected to last for at least one year or to result in death.This is a strict definition of disabil- ity. Social Security is also required by law to review the current medical con- dition of all people receiving disability benefits to make sure they continue to have a qualifying disability. Generally, if someone’s health hasn’t improved, orif their disability still keeps them from working, they will continue to receive benefits.To help us make our decision, we’ll first gather new information about a benefit recipient’s medical condition. We’ll ask their doctors, hospitals, and other medical sources for their medi- cal records. We’ll ask them how their medical condition limits their activities, what their medical tests show, and what medical treatments they have been given. If we need more information, we’ll ask them to go for an examina- tion or test for which we’ll pay.Social Security is a support system for people who cannot work because of a disability. You can learn more about Social Security disability at www. socialsecurity.gov/disability and also by accessing our starter kits and checklists at www.socialsecurity.gov/planners/ disability.Vonda VanTil is the Public Affairs Specialist for West Michigan.
