Social Security Disability Insurance Lawyers
Helping you with all of your SSDI questions
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a benefits program that provides financial assistance to those with physical and mental impairments that prevent them from working. Many medical conditions can be eligible for SSDI benefits, including back injuries, respiratory illnesses, psychiatric disorders such as PTSD, cancer, and more. The Social Security Administration uses a manual called the Blue Book that includes a long list of physical and mental impairments when awarding disability benefits. If you have questions about whether your condition will qualify, don't hesitate to contact our Irvine social security disability lawyers at United States Disability Center
To be eligible for SSDI (or SSD):
- You must be under the age of 65
- Your disability must be expected to last for more than 12 months
- You must have enough work credits paid into the Social Security system
- You must have a disability or impairment that prevents you from being able to work (to be determined by a doctor)
Unlike Supplemental Security Income, SSDI does not have limits on assets. However, individuals must not exceed the earning limit for any part-time work you perform while receiving benefits.
Importance of Hiring an Attorney
While individuals can and do regularly apply for benefits on their own, they quickly realize that the process is much more complicated than it seems. In fact, many claims are initially denied due to technicalities in defining a disability and insufficient paperwork to prove that an individual is disabled.
