Frequently Asked Questions about SSDI

What is Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability Insurance is a federal program to assist those disabled who are unable to work and earn income for a twelve month period or more  due to an illness or injury. These individuals have accumulated enough work history in the past ten years to qualify. Credits are given for every three months, while gainfully employed.

What is the difference between Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income?

SSDI provides assistance to those disabled who meet specific medical criteria, have earned income for a documented specified period of time and paid government documented Social Security taxes. SSI is for those who have not accumulated enough work credits, but are mentally or physically unable to have gainful employment.

What if one has been denied Social Security Disability in the past?

A previous SSDI denial should not stop one from reapplying if one’s medical condition has not improved or has worsened. It is not unusual for one’s claim to be denied multiple times.

Does one need to be under a doctor’s care?

Yes, it is extremely important to continue care and treatment to help document and facilitate claims whether pending or in the early documentation phase. One’s medical substantiation is paramount to a favorable claim decision.

May one continue to work while applying or collecting SSDI?

Yes, current allowable income is $1,130 per month to receive SSDI benefits.

What SSDI benefits may one receive?
