What Is Social Security Disability?
If you are ill or disabled, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits prior to full retirement age. To qualify, you need earnings for five out of the 10 years prior to becoming disabled unless you are younger than 31 years of age. You must be out of work or expect to be out of work for at least five consecutive months; however, an application for benefits can be filed immediately after stopping work.
Your disability can be work-related or nonwork-related, or a combination of work injuries and other conditions. Disability can be based upon either physical or emotional impairments, or a combination of the two. All injuries, illnesses, conditions, diseases and impairments are viewed in conjunction when determining eligibility for Social Security Disability.
It is wise to seek the counsel of an attorney before filing your SSD claim. We can guide you through the process and ensure that all document requirements and deadlines are met.
