If you have suffered serious injuries and are no longer able to work, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI). To quality for SSDI, one must be disabled under the Social Security guidelines and be unable to work for a period of twelve (12) consecutive months. Social Security has a very complex set of regulations defining what is considered a ‘disabling condition’ and what disabling conditions constitute “severe impairments” under the guidelines. Therefore, it is very important to contact an attorney knowledgeable about the Social Security process to discuss your particular injuries and work history.
In order to quality for SSDI benefits, you must have paid enough Social Security payments into the system over your work life history. Your monthly eligibility benefit will depend upon how much you paid into the system. This is the amount you paid from your paycheck to Social Security. Often times initial claims for SSDI are denied and an appeal can be filed to have your claim heard by an Administrative Law Judge. In order to protect your rights and to present the best possible case to the judge, you should contact any attorney familiar with the Social Security process.
If you have a severe disabling condition that prevents you from returning to work, you may qualify for SSDI benefits. Please contact me to discuss your case in detail.
