Does a Pre-existing Condition Disqualify Me From Receiving Disability Benefits?

You have a pre-existing condition that had allowed you to work, but now there’s been a change. You’re worried about applying for Social Security Disability thinking that the Social Security Administration will deny a claim for benefits with a preexisting condition, even though your disability has altered your ability to work in the Oakland and Sacramento area. Is it possible to receive disability benefits or does your pre-existing condition already disqualify you?

The SSA allows individuals to have a pre-existing condition while receiving disability benefits. The determination to award disability benefits will be based on the condition causing your disability, not the pre-existing condition. If you are struck with one of the disabling conditions that the SSA considers under its Compassionate Allowances program, your benefits will be awarded sooner without the normal several months of waiting for an initial determination.

A pre-existing condition won’t stop you from receiving disability benefits, but the filing the initial claim with medical evidence of both can be tricky. When you hire a Social Security attorney, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your claim is prepared with the proper and complete medical evidence the SSA looks for in making the initial determination for benefits.

The law firm of David Allen & Associates understands that a pre-existing condition that once allowed you to work can change to a debilitating condition making it impossible to work. Our legal team has a 44-year history of helping people receive the disability benefits they need.
