Who qualifies for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits?

Sometimes life brings unavoidable tragedy into our lives. Many workers and combat veterans have suffered from serious injury and are left with few options when it comes to finding help. Serious physical and mental health disabilities stop people from earning a living and properly providing for themselves, and their loved-ones.

Anytime there are obstacles to creating a financial foundation for yourself, you’re in trouble. Everyone needs money to pay their bills and have the life they dream about. If you are suffering from a serious physical or mental limitation, you could be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

Here is a list of criteria that must be met to qualify for SSDI:

  • Types of impairment - Your illness or impairment must be among a list of qualifying types. Common types include: heart disease, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, depression/anxiety, orthopedic injuries, etc.
  • Duration of injury/medical condition – Any qualifying injury or medical condition must show consistency for a minimum of 12 months or be expected to persist for the next 12 months or is expected to lead to a pre-mature death.
  • Active work history – Applicants need to have paid into FICA taxes during an extensive amount of previous work history.

If you are unsure about your qualifying for SSDI, it is important to seek legal counsel right away. There are many laws surrounding disability among workers that could help you recover lost wages and acquire the financial security you need. You are not alone in legal justification for the benefits you seek. Getting approved for SSDI could make a huge impact on your daily quality-of-life.
