What Is Social Security Disability Insurance?
Social Security Disability Insurance provides for basic needs if you are no longer able to work due to a medical condition. In order to be eligible, you must meet work history and other eligibility requirements, including proving that you are disabled. SSDI may also be available to family members who meet eligibility requirements.
SSDI is not welfare. You have paid into the system in the form of taxes. Getting benefits when you need them is why you have paid into the system to begin with, just like any insurance policy.
Important Information For People Applying For Disability Benefits
SSDI covers basic costs of living for people with a disabling condition expected to last for more than one year. You do not have to be disabled for over one year before applying for benefits. It is important to apply for benefits immediately upon becoming disabled.
Give us a call if you have questions about your application at 304-932-4619. We’ll help you understand how and when to apply. If you are denied, we can take on your appeal – and we won’t accept any fees unless we are successful in getting you benefits.
We Help Those Who Have Been Denied Benefits
The majority of initial applications to obtain SSDI benefits are denied. If you are in this situation, please call our Charleston, West Virginia, office at 304-932-4619. You can also reach us through email. There is no cost to call and get information, so there is no risk or obligation to you.
