Social Security Disability is paid to individuals who have become permanently disabled or have a disability expected to last longer than a year. To qualify for SSDI you must also have paid enough Social Security taxes on your wages to have earned benefits. SSDI is awarded for many types of disabilities, including:
The SSDI claim process includes the preparation and submission of an application as well as a hearing to determine your eligibility for benefits. An administrative judge presides over the hearing, which can also include medical and vocational experts and even witnesses who can provide information on the impact your disability has had on your life. You are allowed legal representation at the hearing as well, which is strongly advised. An attorney can be an effective advocate when seeking SSDI, and help protect your rights to benefits.
