Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is part of the Federal Social Security program that a provides payments to those who are disabled, are younger than full retirement age, have enough quarters of work credit to qualify for benefits. Those who have not worked long enough may qualify for SSI.
To qualify for either program, a claimant must prove to the Social Security Administration that he or she is disabled. Social Security finds a claimant disabled when the claimant proves that they are not capable of doing substantial, gainful employment.
Who is disabled and who is not disabled has evolved into a complex question that is not always easily answered. As a result, the Social Security application and decision process has become increasingly complex and now, more than ever, requires that a skilled Social Security Lawyer be involved in the process from the beginning application.
