Social Security Disability Evaluation
When an application for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits is submitted, the Social Security Administration will assess and review the person’s physical condition in order to determine their eligibility for financial support. A large part of this decision is based on the amount that the disability affects the individual’s ability to perform work-related tasks.
There are various levels of Social Security disability eligibility and each person should review their options completely with an attorney in order to make sure they are eligible to apply for benefits. The Philadelphia SSD attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. understand the complexities of social security laws and can help you with your case.

Some of the most common considerations made by the SSA include:
- Education level of the applicant
- The applicant’s work history
- Ability to complete tasks unrelated to their designated job
- The age of the applicant
- Job requirements and the way that any disabilities may affect these obligations
These factors have a large impact on a person’s benefits and whether or not they will be granted financial assistance. By retaining the services of a Social Security lawyer, you may be able to correctly represent your needs and fight for your rights.
