Who Qualifies for SSD/SSI?
Enrollment in SSI (Supplementary Security Income) and SSD (Social Security Disability) programs is open to anyone with a medical condition expected to last a year or more that prevents them from working their old job or adapting to a new one. These conditions can include chronic diseases such as multiple sclerosis, mental/emotional conditions including anxiety or bipolar disorder, and physical disabilities. Which program you qualify for will depend on your work history and your income. If you have a serious illness or disability, it’s important to apply for benefits as quickly as possible. Benefits can help you replace income from your job, so you can pay for housing, groceries and other necessities. Delaying your application can also hurt your chances of securing benefits because there are timelines to follow when applying for benefits. Even if you think you have a likely chance of securing benefits and know other people who have secured benefits with no problems at all, consider speaking to a disability attorney when applying. The reality is that more than half of applicants are denied when they first apply for SSI and SSD benefits. This is often due to an error on their application or a lack of medical evidence. The application process can be confusing and SSD attorneys may assist with your application so you have the best chance of securing the benefits you need. Even if you’re qualified for SSI and SSD benefits, you may receive a notice of denial. If this happens, it doesn’t mean you won’t get benefits. It does mean that you should promptly launch an appeal to seek your rightful benefits. Disability lawyers may be able to prepare your appeal, secure medical records, and prepare you for your hearing so you have the strongest possible chances for success. If you have questions about your eligibility, or would like help beginning the paperwork to file a claim, contact Ritacco Disability Law today. Our experienced Media, PA social security attorneys can advise you of your options and help you take the first steps towards getting your benefits.
