Unraveling Complex Eligibility Questions
Many people wonder whether they qualify for Social Security Disability benefits when they are unable to work. The federal government offers Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and other benefits to those who need help with basic living expenses and medical care. Unfortunately, these benefits can be difficult to come by simply because of the bureaucracies that administer them.
You do not need a lawyer to understand whether you qualify for SSDI or SSI. You may benefit greatly from the help of a lawyer in obtaining benefits, especially if you need to appeal a denied claim.
To qualify for disability benefits, you need to have a medical condition — physical, mental or both — that is expected to keep you from working for at least one year. Your condition must be documented according to Social Security’s rules.
