If I am disabled under other benefit plans, such as Workers’ Compensation, does that mean I will qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits?

No. The definitions of disability are different between various government programs. Someone who has been “classified” as having a permanent, partial disability, under the Workers’ Compensation Law, may nonetheless be considered totally disabled, under the Social Security Disability Benefits law. This is why we so strongly recommend that you speak to an attorney, who practices in the area of Social Security Disability Benefits, to determine the viability of your claim.
