Eligible for Disability in Washington?

Are you working?

If you worked this calendar year and averaged more than $1,000 a month in earnings, you generally can’t be considered disabled. We can help you determine whether this is the case.

Is your condition severe?

To qualify as disabled, your condition must interfere with the basic activities required for your previous job. Proper documentation and evidence are crucial for this step.

Is your health problem found on the list of medical conditions that qualify?

If your health problem is not on Social Security’s list, you may not quality for disability benefits. However, you might still be able to prove you’re disabled if you have the proper medical records. Contact us today to find out if your condition qualifies.

Can you do the work you did previously?

Are you able to perform any job that you had within the last 15 years?

Can you do any other type of work?

If it is decided that you cannot do the work you did before, they’ll consider your ability to do other kinds of work. Age, education and work experience all factor into this consideration. If your health prevents you from working, Tom Bothwell will help you appeal if you’ve applied and been denied. If you have a hearing scheduled, we can help with the critical preparations.
