Times are hard for many people right now. Even able-bodied people can’t always find work, and it can be especially scary for people who are unable to work for health reasons. If you can’t work because of a mental or physical condition, you may be entitled to financial help from the government through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
SSDI is a program that can pay you monthly cash benefits if you have a medical condition that prevents you from working (or earning an income) for at least twelve (12) months. SSDI also requires that you have earned enough work credits to qualify for benefits. But even if you haven’t worked, or earned enough work credits to qualify for SSDI, you may be able to get benefits from another program known as Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
How Can I Qualify for SSDI or SSI Benefits?
To be approved by the Social Security Administration for either SSDI or SSI benefits, you must qualify at each step of a five-step process. Each step has specific requirements, and concrete evidence must be submitted to show that those requirements have been met. Understanding and addressing all of the details in this process is important. It is critical that your case be presented properly to ensure you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.
