According to New Orleans Social Security Disability expert under Social Security rules, you can only be considered disabled if your medical condition is expected to halt you from working for at least one year or might result in death. Your disability can be a mental condition, a physical illness or a mixture of both.
In general cases, Social Security considers you a disabled person if:
- You are no longer able to perform work you did before
- You are unable to adjust to other jobs due to your medical conditions
- Your disability lasts or has lasted for at least one year or results in death.
