Does Age Matter When Filing For Social Security Disability Benefits in Kansas?

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Many people feel that because they are considered to be young that they will be automatically denied their Social Security Disability benefits claim. It is very common for people in their twenties or thirties to wrongly believe that they will not be able to win their Social Security Disability claims because of their age.  Unfortunately they are incorrect with assuming their age will prevent them from being able to successfully file for a SSD or SSI claim.

The truth of the matter is this – as long as you have a work history and you have an elgible disability that prevents you from being able to work for one year or longer, you are very likely to be able to receive Social Security Disability benefits in Kansas no matter your age (over 18 years of age).

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

A common question people have about their eligibility for filing for Social Security Benefits in Kansas is: “What types of injuries or illnesses can qualify me to receive SSI or SSD benefits in Kansas?”

The general qualifying rule is whether or not your disability or illness is expected to last a year or longer and your doctor tells you that you may not work anymore.  This is usually the main reason why you are able to apply for Social Security Disability benefits in Kansas.

If you or a loved one is suffering from a disabling condition as a result of an accident, injury, or pain that prevents you or your loved one from working, contact David Nelson about filing for SSD or SSI benefits in Kansas.

These are some of the more common types of disabilities that are likely to qualify for SSD or SSI in Kansas:

  • Diabetes mellitus

  • Breathing problems, lung diseases
  • Mental health problems

  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Cardiac disorders
  • Headaches/migraines

You or your loved one may be approved for SSD benefits in Kansas regardless of whether or not that condition is specifically listed as an impairment by the Social Security Administration.   The reason is that the Social Security Administration focuses on your ability to do despite your pain versus a diagnosis of an injury or disease.
