Why Doesn’t Social Security Understand I Can’t Work?

Posted January 7, 2014

Many people who contact us for help with their disability claim don’t understand why they are having such a hard time getting approved. At Drummond Disability, we are repeatedly asked why the “Government” doesn’t understand why the claimant can’t work. The Government and the Social Security Administration system is not set up to make it easy to get disability. It is set up to make it difficult.

In addition to being disabled, Social Security requires that the claimant has been or will be disabled for a continuous period of twelve months before they would have a valid claim. Additionally, as with any system, not everybody who works for the Government is knowledgeable about medical terminology, conditions, or diseases nor are they all sympathetic to claimants. The entire Social Security Disability system is organized around the premise that a disabled individual “prove” their claim. This usually entails developing medical evidence and setting it forth in a constructive manner so as to meet the legal requirements for disability in each particular situation.

At Drummond Disability, we try to make it easy for the person deciding the disability claim to rule in favor of our clients.
