Social Security Disability and Acceptable Medical Sources

Charlotte area residents who are living with a serious illness or injury may want to investigate whether they are eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD). SSD is a program to help those who are no longer able to work because of a serious illness. In order for a person to qualify for SSD they must have a medical diagnosis from an approved medical source. Not every provider is an approved medical source for diagnosing a disability.

Social Security disability can be the answer to a person's prayers. When a person is no longer able to work because of an injury or illness, they may still be eligible to receive SSD payments. An approved medical source is necessary to provide evidence of the disability.

An approved medical source can be a licensed doctor, licensed psychologist, school psychologist, licensed optometrist, licensed podiatrist, licensed speech language pathologist, licensed physician assistants, licensed audiologist, certified nurse midwife, nurse practitioner, certified registered nurse anesthetist, and clinical nurse specialist.

Charlotte residents should understand that there are certain medical providers that are not an approved medical source. These include naturopath doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and occupational therapists. A legal professional who is skilled in Social Security Disability can be a good resource for a person who needs help with the application. An attorney can help their client obtain the benefits they qualify for. These benefits can help cover expenses and support a person's family.

Social Security Disability can help a family tremendously when a person is no longer able to work due to injury or illness. An attorney who specializes in SSD can help a person receive the benefits they deserve.
