Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits or (SSDI) can provide people who are no longer able to work or maintain employment with financial support. Imagine still being at working age and suffering an injury or illness that prohibits your ability to continue working? This can be a scary process, full of a number of unknowns. Such a process can have a financial impact on a person, regardless of whether benefits are approved. Approval of SSDI benefits can take months before any sort of compensation can be obtained. While there are a number of reasons why people may require the support of SSDI, there are also a number of reasons to hire an attorney for help. Hickey & Turim may be able to provide you with legal support, especially if your claim has been denied and you must endure the appeals process.

The Need for SSDI Benefits

When a person is unable to work due to a disability, they may begin to consider the need for SSDI benefits. You will need to complete an application, along with the proper documentation and send it off to the Social Security Administration (SSA) for approval. Some may find that they are deterred or overwhelmed by the process. When someone doesn’t obtain the benefits they so desperately need they may be impacted in a number of ways. Here are some reasons a person may want to pursue SSDI benefits:

  1. They suffer from a long term illness such as: heart failure, respiratory illness or neurological problems.
  2. They suffer from mental illness that makes it difficult to obtain and/or retain employment such as bipolar disorder or multiple personality disorder.
  3. SSDI recipients have the ability to obtain help with housing as well, which can offer a huge support. Although SSDI doesn’t necessarily pay or offers programs for housing, there are other programs that a person may qualify for.
  4. Insurance coverage and medical benefits can be a challenge for people with significant illness. SSDI may offer benefits that may be able to provide assistance.
