Disability benefits for adults who meet the work credit requirement
To be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, you have to meet both the technical and medical eligibility requirements. To be technically eligible for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits, you must have worked 20 out of the last 40 fiscal quarters, which is roughly 5 out of the last 10 years. Also, a person must be unable to engage in substantial gainful activity (SGA) due to a severe physical or mental limitation. For 2013, SGA is considered to be $1040 a month for non-blind individuals, and it is $1740 a month for blind individuals.
Most people are denied with the initial application and will need to attend an administrative law hearing before an administrative law judge to prove their disability. The appeals process for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits can be very long, tedious, complicated. Not only can we help you with your initial application, but we will also work closely with Social Security and your medical providers to expedite your application and appeals process.
