Understanding SSDI Benefits

If you are disabled, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These federal benefits were put into place by the Social Security Act for all Americans. In order to receive these benefits, you must prove to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you are disabled under their definition, which means that you cannot work due to a physical and/or mental condition that will last or has lasted for one year or that will lead to death. You must show that you cannot do the work that you did before or that you cannot adjust to other work because of your condition(s). You must also meet other eligibility requirements for each of these benefits programs.

The process of applying for and obtaining these benefits through a claim submitted to the SSA can be a tedious, lengthy, and frustrating process. You must meet certain deadlines, fill out all necessary paperwork accurately, and submit medical documentation concerning your medical condition. Should you fail to do so, you may face drastically increased wait times and delays, as well as the possibility of a claim denial. The number of those who are turned down by the SSA on their initial application is very high. All of these factors underscore the need to have the legal help of a skilled Social Security Disability lawyer. Your chances of a favorable result are much higher if you do.
