Struggling With Your Social Security Disability Claim?
Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI is a federal benefit available for those eligible who have severe medical conditions that render them unable to perform the duties of any past job or any other type of regular employment. To qualify for SSDI, individuals must meet a strict definition of disability. The disabling condition must be one that is severe and expected to last for at least one year, or to result in death. Documented medical treatment is critical in proving the extent of disability needed to qualify for social security benefits.
Who Qualifies for SSDI or SSI
Supplemental Security Income is for people who are disabled, blind, or over 65. Additionally, in order to qualify for SSI, it must be shown that you have very limited income or resources. Applying for SSDI or SSI can be a very long and difficult process.
What to Do If Denied SSDI or SSI
It is not uncommon for a disabled person to be denied benefits from the Social Security Administration after filing the initial application. If this should happen you would need to file an appeal of that decision. The appeal process is long and there are strict deadlines that must be followed.
