What is Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability benefits are a precaution set in place by the government to protect individuals who are unable to work as a result of a long-term disability. Disability benefits are split into two categories, Social Security Disability SSDI and Supplemental Security Income SSI. The difference between the two is that SSDI provides support to people who have been employed long enough to have been able to earn enough work credits and have paid into Social Security taxes. On the other hand, SSI is for adults and children with limited income and resources who have never worked. Medical eligibility for either program is determined through a comparable process in most cases.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

The SSA has very strict criteria pertaining to who gets approved for benefits. To qualify for benefits, an individual must under 65 and both be permanently disabled or with a condition severe enough to restrict them from working, along with showing a financial need, meaning no income, and less than $2,000 in assets. To qualify for SSDI, the applicant must have both contributed towards FICA premiums while working and have acquired enough work credits which the exact requirements vary depending on age. In regard to qualifying medical conditions, there is a list of commonly approved conditions available here, with a separate list of qualifications for people under the age of 18.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

People are denied SSD due to a variety of reasons. The biggest reasons include if your disability is due to drug and alcohol abuse, your medication condition is short term, you have previous convictions, lack of evidence, or are failing to comply with treatment. Oftentimes social workers will ask questions about follow-up appointments to make sure that the client is actively seeking and complying with treatment. An attorney can help keep you on track and make sure you are receiving the benefits you deserve.
