Social Security Disability benefits are available to individuals who are unable to work due to a physical or mental disability. To qualify for these benefits, applicants must meet certain criteria, including having a disability that is expected to last at least one year or result in death, and having worked long enough and recently enough to be insured under Social Security. The Social Security Administration (SSA) determines eligibility for disability benefits based on an individual’s medical condition, age, education, and work history. The SSA also considers whether an individual can adjust to other work, given his or her medical condition, age, education, and work experience. If an individual is found to be disabled, he or she may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI is a monthly benefit paid to individuals who have worked and paid Social Security taxes, while SSI is a monthly benefit paid to individuals who have limited income and resources. In addition to monthly benefits, individuals may also be eligible for Medicare or Medicaid coverage. The SSA also provides work incentives and other services to help individuals with disabilities return to work.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides a variety of benefits to those who qualify, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). To be eligible for either of these benefits, you must meet certain criteria. To qualify for SSDI, you must have worked and paid Social Security taxes for a certain number of years, and you must have a disability that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. To qualify for SSI, you must have limited income and resources, and you must be either blind, disabled, or over the age of 65. In addition, you must be a U.S. citizen or a qualified non-citizen. If you think you may be eligible for either of these benefits, you should contact the SSA to discuss your situation. The SSA will review your work history, medical records, and other information to determine if you are eligible for benefits. If you are approved, you will receive a monthly benefit payment, as well as access to other services such as medical care and vocational rehabilitation.
