The Social Security Administration follows strict guidelines when determining whether or not an individual is considered “disabled” and can therefore receive benefits. This is why it’s to your advantage to have a lawyer on your side who can help you to navigate the process. At Grech Law Firm, we can help you to determine whether or not you qualify for disability benefits such as SSD or SSI.

Do I Qualify For Disability Benefits?

To qualify for SSD, or Social Security Disability Insurance, you must first be deemed disabled by the Social Security Administration. In addition, you must also have paid a high enough amount in Social Security taxes and worked a minimum of five of the last 10 years from the day you were determined disabled. SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a needs-based program. To qualify, one must not only be considered disabled but also receive a limited income.

Qualification Questions

If you’re wondering whether or not you qualify for SSD or SSI disability benefits, start by asking yourself the following questions:

  • Am I currently receiving Social Security benefits?
  • Do I expect to be out of work for at least 12 months?
  • Am I currently working?
  • When is the last time I worked?
  • Am I receiving any form of treatment from a doctor?
