  • How Social Security Evaluates Chronic Pain in Disability Claims Chr...onic pain is ongoing or recurrent pain that continues longer than the usual course of acute illness or injury, or more than three to six months. Chronic pain may manifest in any area, including back pain, headaches, joint pain, or generalized muscle or nerve pain. It may be related to an injury or illness, or it may have no known cause. Can Chronic Pain Qualify You for Disability Benefits? To qualify for Social Security or SSI disability benefits, you must first show the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you have a severe “medically determinable” physical or mental impairment. This means that your impairment must be established by medical evidence that includes objective symptoms and lab tests. .The important thing is to get a diagnosis from a qualified medical professional such as a medical doctor or psychiatrist. Getting Legal Help Unless you apply for disability benefits for multiple medical impairments, chronic pain can be difficult to get disability benefits for. You will more than likely be denied benefits at the initial application stage and need to go to a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. We can help you prepare for your disability hearing so that your testimony supports your case and can cross-examine the vocational expert to rule out jobs that you can do. We can help you find one of the best attorneys in your area. Let us deal with The Social Security Administration for you. For more free resources, go to our website via the link below. See More
