No one wants to file a Social Security Disability claim, but things happen. Many of them are beyond a claimant's control. These occurrences, genetic dispositions or both render a person unable to work. It happens, and it happens a lot. I have multiple cases a week that come in where people cannot work full time. That's the standard: can you work eight hours a day, five days a week? If you can't you are disabled. That's the law.
