Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a benefit from the federal government for those who are disabled or otherwise unable to work. Applying and qualifying for the program can be a cumbersome and time-consuming process, and rejected claims are common. SSDI attorney Sam Earley can guide you through the claims process and increase your chance of having a successful claim.
What Are Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits?
Social Security Disability Insurance benefits are paid monthly to well over 57 million Americans to replace a portion of their earnings. These benefits are paid to qualifying citizens to provide needed assistance in differing situations. Basically, if you are unable to work because of a physical or mental condition that meets certain requirements, you may be eligible for SSDI benefits.
How Do I Qualify for SSDI?
In order to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you must have held a job for a period of time, but can no longer work because of a disabling or debilitating medical condition. Eligibility is determined by your work history and the type and severity of your disability or injury. To be eligible for SSDI, you must have worked on average, 5 out of the past 10 years. SSDI benefits are not paid to people with only partial disabilities or short-term disabling conditions.
Some of the conditions that can medically qualify you for SSDI benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Cardiovascular conditions
- Crohn’s Disease
- Chronic Anemia
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Hearing Loss
- Loss of Limb
- Renal Failure
- Severe Burns
- Spinal Paralysis
- Vision Loss
We can help you determine if your disability and other qualifications meet the requirements for SSDI benefits. Our disability lawyers can also review your work history and record of Social Security payments to help you determine eligibility. Your disabling condition will need to be verified by the appropriate medical records, which Sam Earley and his team can help you collect.
