Do I Qualify For SSD?
To receive SSD benefits, the individual must have worked for a certain number of years and have also paid enough in Social Security taxes. The amount of work credits a person needs to be eligible for SSD benefits is 20 work credits in the past 10 years. You can earn one work credit per quarter, which equates to a maximum of 4 work credits per year. This means one must have worked at least 5 years out of the last 10 to have earned enough work credits to be eligible for SSDIB. The work does not have to be 5 consecutive years and can be spread out over the 10 year window. In 2022, you will earn one work credit for every $1,510.00 in covered earnings you earn in a quarter. This means if you earned $6,040.00 in a year you can get your maximum four credits.
In order to be eligible for SSD benefits, you must also be younger than 65.. I can help you determine whether or not you qualify for SSD benefits and guide you through the application and appeal process. I proudly serve clients in Utica, Mount Clemens, Southfield, and throughout the Macomb County and Wayne County areas of Michigan.
After Social Security determines if you have enough work credits, they will then decide whether you are disabled. In order to be disabled under Social Security's rules, we have to prove that you are disabled from performing any "substantial gainful activity." This means we have to prove that you cannot work any job for 8 hours a day, 40 hours per week. Social Security will look at both your mental and physical conditions to determine if they preclude you from performing any full time work.
