one of the millions of Americans who has become
too sick or injured to continue working, you may
be wondering how the SSA determines if youre
disabled enough to receive Social Security
Disability benefits.

Its becoming more and more popular for the SSA
to do whatever it takes to try to catch you not
following doctors orders, or prove that you are
not as sick or injured as you claim to be. Just
like private insurance companies used to follow
around claimants with video cameras doing
activities they werent supposed to be able to
do, the SSA is known for researching SSD
claimants to prove their claims are false. Only
now, public social media pages are making it
easier than ever for the SSA to claim you arent
as sick or injured as you say you are.

If youre applying for Social Security Disability
or thinking about doing so, keep all social media
profiles private, always follow doctors orders
and never post anything that would suggest you
arent actually disabled.

If youre disabled and no longer able to work,
you should file for Social Security Disability
benefits as soon as possible, so you can receive
as much back pay as you are eligible for. But
before you fill out that application, make sure
to contact an experienced Disability Advocate for
Assistance. He or she will be able to guide you
through the difficult process of proving to the
SSA that you are in fact disabled, and win the
Social Security Disability benefits that you
deserve.
