If you have been injured and are disabled, or if you have a medical problem that prevents you from working, even if you have no health insurance, you should apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Keefe Disability Law explains in this video more about the Social Security Disability system in Massachusetts. Watch to learn more.

If you have a medical problem but have not gone to the doctor because you don't have health insurance, you most likely do not have proof of medical treatments that can establish your Social Security Disability claim. Although this can impact your disability case since you do not have medical evidence that documents your illness, you should still apply for disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will send you to their own doctors for evaluation of your condition to determine if you are considered disabled under their regulations.
