Will I qualify?
Disability lawyers are asked this question a lot: “Am I disabled enough to qualify for benefits from the Social Security Administration?”
Unfortunately, this is a hard question to answer directly because a lot of individual information is needed – severity of impairment, medical findings, symptoms, details of past work, whether you can read and write English, and more.
