SSDI Eligibility Breakdown
Things to Know About Social Security
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a program called the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. It is designed to help disabled adults and children. The SSA also has a program called the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The SSDI is designed to help adults who have worked and paid into the system for at least five years.
How to Qualify for SSDI Benefits
If you have worked long enough and paid into the system, your chances of qualifying for the SSDI are high. To qualify for SSDI, you must meet the following:
You cannot be currently working and must have worked at least five of the past 10 years.
You cannot receive other federal disability benefits like Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) and SSI
You must have worked a specific number of months in the past 10 years
Among other qualifications
Benefits of SSDI
When it comes to SSDI, there are many benefits one can receive if you're eligible. Currently, the SSDI program pays $1,100 a month to those who have worked and paid into the system for at least ten years. Because SSDI is federal insurance, you don't have to pay premiums on them like other payments. Finally, if your monthly income has been reduced by at least half due to your disability, the SSA will give you a percentage.
What Is a Disability Advocate?
A disability advocate is a person who helps people with disabilities apply for benefits from the SSA or other government agencies or programs. A disability representative is a person who helps people with disabilities apply for benefits from the SSA or other government agencies or programs, but usually only if they are not able to do it on their own.
