What is Social Security Disability?
Social Security disability (SSD or SSDI) benefits are monthly payments paid to workers who were disabled before retirement age and cannot return to work. This is also called workers disability.
Who Is Eligible To Apply?
There are certain legal, financial, and medical requirements that an applicant must fulfill. For one thing, your disability or medical condition must qualify as being severe, long-term, and total according to the definitions laid out by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Furthermore, depending on your age, you must have accrued enough work credits. For instance, if a 50-year-old became disabled and wanted to apply, he or she must have 28 work credits, that is, to have worked seven years, five of which occurred in the last decade. Call (888) 602-3906 to speak with an SSD attorney and see if you qualify!
How Long Does the Process Take?
The time frame can vary. Decisions are given between 4 to 6 months from the initial application. If an application was denied, this can take an additional several months up to a year or more for the process to complete. This is because the overwhelming majority of first-time applicants are denied, and it could take anywhere from one to three appeal steps to secure approval.
What Are the Costs for Applying?
There are no upfront fees to hire a Social Security disability lawyer. This is called a contingency fee agreement, where the lawyer is paid only if he or she can secure disability benefits for you. In fact, an SSD lawyer only gets paid if you are awarded past-due benefits; their fee comes from this back pay.
