Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income Benefits
Are you suffering from severe medical conditions that are interfering with your daily activities and preventing you from earning a living? If so, you may qualify for Social Security Disability insurance benefits.
Social Security Disability insurance benefits, otherwise known as “SSDI” benefits, are available to people who have earned coverage by working and paying into the social security system through their payroll taxes and that meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of “disabled.” It is an insurance program that provides approved claimants with some financial support and, after a waiting period, Medicare eligibility.
For those who do not have sufficient quarters of earnings to be insured by the SSDI program there is still help available. Supplemental Security Income, otherwise knows as “SSI” benefits, is available to people who meet certain income and asset limits and that meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of “disabled.”
Dealing with severe medical conditions and their effect on daily activities can be extremely overwhelming. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration has not made the application process for benefits any easier. After completing an extensive application followed by lengthy questionnaires, many qualified disabled individuals are initially denied and eventually find themselves before an Administrative Law Judge to plead their cases.
