Applying For Social Security Disability Benefits Or Challenging A Denial?
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are federal programs that provide benefits for those with disabilities. Applying for these benefits can be confusing, intimidating and complex. Many people who attempt to apply on their own end up facing denials.
Those seeking SSDI benefits must pass a test with two parts. The applicant must have worked for five years during the past decade and contributed enough into the fund. Those seeking SSI benefits must instead demonstrate sufficient financial need.
Both SSDI and SSI also require applicants to demonstrate that they suffer from a qualifying disability. Some types of serious medical conditions automatically qualify. In many cases, however, the applicant must meet strict legal standards to prove that his or her disability qualifies.
