Social Security Disability

Both physical and mental conditions can qualify for disability benefits. To receive benefits you must suffer from a condition that will prevent you from working for 12 months.

Physical Conditions

Qualifying for SSDI

If you are under the age 65 and it appears that you will not be able to work for a year or more due to a variety of physical handicaps, chronic illnesses or mental disorders, you maybe eligible to recieve Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. You must meet requirements based on your work history and earnings to qualify for the benefits.

 

If you are awarded SSDI benefits, the amount will be based on a formula that takes into account the money that you earned and payed employment taxes on. You can request an estimate of your disability benefit from the Social Security  Administration.

 

If you are awarded SSDI benefits, other members of your family maybe eligible for benefits including your children under the age of 18. You will become eligible for Medicare coverage automatically after you have received disability benefit for 2 years.

 

If you are considering, applying for benefits or have been denied benefits. Call Denise E. Murray for a full evaluation of your case.
