Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). This federal insurance program allows individuals to receive monthly benefits if they cannot work because they are limited by their disability. If an applicant has been working and paying social security for five out of the previous ten years, then they may qualify to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. 

You need to establish your disability status with the Social Security Administration (SSA). It is necessary to prove that you cannot perform the duties of your former job and that you cannot perform any other type of work due to your disability. The disabling condition must also restrict your ability to work for a minimum of twelve months.

The Social Security Administration will be painstaking about processing your application because they do not want to omit any important details that may affect the benefits you receive. If your application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is denied, then you have the right to appeal the decision and have the Social Security Administration (SSA) reconsider your application. 

The Most Common Conditions That May Qualify You For Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits 

It is important to speak with a knowledgeable disability lawyer before you submit your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) application. You may need to see a medical specialist to determine the nature and extent of your disability.

An Experienced Disability Lawyer Can Help You Improve Your Application 

It is important to have assistance when you prepare your disability application. Approximately two-thirds of all Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) applications are denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you can prepare the application well and obtain an approval then you can save months of time that you would otherwise spend appealing the adverse decision. 

Also, you must abide by the duration rule when you submit a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) application. The rule states that a disability has to last or be expected to last for a minimum of twelve months to meet the requirements set forth by the Social Security Administration (SSA). 

Sometimes applicants will submit their applications at an early stage and they will not have proof that their disability has lasted for at least twelve months. Having a legal advocate on your side will ensure that you submit the strongest application possible.
