Social Security Disability Benefits

Do you know the possibility of becoming disabled while working is greater than you may think? Studies by Social Security Administration have shown that 3 in 10, 20-year-old workers are likely to have a disability before retirement age. This can pose some financial problems especially if the victim is unable to work. However, the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) plan compensates individuals who get disabled before retiring. Below is a brief look at Social Security Disability Benefits.

Requirements

You can only qualify for this insurance plan if you are not disabled and if you have built up enough work credits with Social Security. The number of claimable credits will depend on your age as well as the year you become disabled. For instance, you must have worked for a part of 5 for the last 10 years before the disability. In addition, you will receive benefits if your disability is life threatening or if you have endured it for one year or more.

Applying for the benefits

There are many ways for applying for disability benefits which are designed to help individuals to process requests and get the compensation they require. The process starts by completing an application which you can do in person, online, by email or telephone. Once your application is received, you will give a disability report and later provide the necessary documents to support your claim. The disability report contains the information regarding your educational background, work and medical condition.

Tips when applying for the benefits

The best way to maximize your chances for compensation is ensuring you discuss your situation with an experienced disability lawyer. Qualified lawyers will give your case the necessary attention, analyze it thoroughly and answer any legal question that may arise.
