You qualify for social security disability benefits by first filing an application and once it gets to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review an administrative law judge will look at your medical and/or psychological conditions. He’ll look at your past earnings history. He’ll look at where you’ve worked for the last 15 years before you became disabled and he’ll look at your age and he’ll make a determination whether or not number one you can do any of your past relevant work. And then number two whether or not you can do any other jobs in the regional or national economies. If you can’t do any other jobs in the regional or national economies there’ll be a finding that you’re disabled and you’ll win the benefits.
