A Look at Some Social Security Disability Eligibility Requirements

Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, was made to provide income supplements to people who are unable to work because of a disability, usually physical. The SSDI can be supplied as either a temporary or permanent solution, typically depending on whether the disability of the person is temporary or permanent. It does not rely on the income of the person receiving it, unlike with Supplemental Security Income. Any person of any income level can receive SSDI if he or she is legitimately disabled. The length of the process of getting SSDI would depend on the area where the person lives as well as the severity of their condition, and it is very much a possibility to have a claim rejected and be forced to have a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. On average, a claim may take just around three months to process. The disability benefits don’t usually begin until 5 months after the established onset of the disability.

Experienced Social Security Lawyers Can Help with the Entire Process

America’s largest retirement asset is social security. The system, however, is very complex and can be rather hard to understand. Without sufficient knowledge of how it works, you could lose a lot of money. According to Laurence Kotlikoff, author of a book about social security, "The benefits are there for the taking. You paid for them. And with a little effort, you can dramatically increase what you get." To make sure of this, you can enlist the services of experienced social security lawyers like those from Jan Dils, Attorneys-at-Law to help you through the process. Simply taking the benefits as they come without really thinking about it could cost you much. There are a lot of benefits available to a person, and there are many ways to receive these benefits. A common mistake that people make is taking benefits too soon because they’re worried that they will expire before they can get the opportunity to collect.
