Social Security Disability – The Basics
Social Security disability benefits are made available to those who have worked enough time in occupations in which they paid Social Security taxes that they are eligible to receive these benefits in return. Essentially, American workers earn “credits” for each year worked in an occupation for which they paid Social Security taxes. Most of the time, workers can earn up to four credits for every year of eligible employment. Provided that you have earned 40 credits total (and at least half of these credits were earned in the 10 years immediately prior to filing for disability benefits), you should qualify for SSD. Note that if you’re a younger worker, there is likely no reason to panic. The system doesn’t require you to earn as many credits before you can qualify for these benefits.
To be considered adequately disabling, the medical condition that is preventing you from working full-time must either be expected to affect you in this way for at least one year, have already affected you for one year, or must be expected to eventually lead to your death. Before you can be approved for benefits, you’ll need to submit significant medical, taxation-related, and identifying documentation. Additionally, you’ll need to submit to interviews and prepare complex paperwork. Allowing our firm to assist you with your application will better ensure that nothing “falls through the cracks” and ultimately gives the Social Security Administration a reason to reject your application.
