Pursuing SSDI Benefits

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) exists to provide benefits to those unable to work because of a health condition or disability. Unfortunately, benefits can be difficult to obtain, due to the complexity of the application process and the strict guidelines for qualification.

The SSDI Application Process

Applying for SSDI begins with filling out an extensive application that we submit to the Social Security Administration, followed by the possibility of appeals, including a hearing before an administrative law judge. It can take from several months to two years from application to the receipt of benefits. If your application is denied, then you may request a reconsideration of your case.

Benefits And Eligibility

Social Security Disability benefits pays recipients monthly as long as they meet eligibility requirements. Disability recipients may also earn income from work, generally just above $1,000. The Social Security Administration judges the eligibility of applicants by using detailed criteria. They look at how your functional capacity is affected by your health condition or injury, and if you can do another type of work based on your education and your functional ability.
