Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance
What You Need to Know About SSDI Qualifications
To qualify for SSDI you must be under retirement age and have worked at a job in which Social Security taxes were taken. In addition, you must meet the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) definition of “disabled” which includes any medical condition that prohibits working in the same or similar capacity as you have in the past.
While the SSA’s definition of disability seems fairly cut and dry, obtaining SSDI is exceedingly complex — so complex that a majority of claims are initially denied. Unfortunately, denials require a long and even more complex appeals process.
