Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits
There are certain requirements you must meet to be eligible for Social Security disability benefits (also called Title II). Many factors will be considered, including the following:
- Physical and/or mental problems that restrict you from working for 12 months or more
- The inability to work at any reasonable job
- Your age
- Your education level
- Your previous work experience
You pay into SSD benefits through your weekly paycheck. The benefits you are entitled to are based upon the 10 or more years you worked prior to becoming disabled. We work hard to ensure clients rightfully receive the benefits they have contributed to with their paychecks.
Qualifying for Supplemental Security Income
You may also qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) in addition to your SSD benefits. The requirements for SSI (also known as Title XVI) are need-based. This means you may be eligible for SSI even if you have never worked.
