Social Security Disability Income

Posted on:10/13/2012
Social security disability income is a sort of "insurance policy" that most people who are working pay into through their employment. The eligibility for this program is based primarily on the fact that you are disabled.


Social security disability income is a sort of "insurance policy" that most people who are working pay into through their employment. The eligibility for this program is based primarily on the fact that you are disabled.

 

There are certain other requirements. To qualify for social security disability income (SSDI or sometimes SSD) you also must be unable to participate in gainful employment. You must have been working for 20 out of the last 40 quarters and have paid into the system through your employer.

 

You must be a citizen of the United States or a resident alien who has received amnesty, though not for SSD. You must provide proof of disability as defined by Social Security Administration and documented by a physician

 

Supplemental Security Income program is offered by the federal government to people who do not earn an amount that brings them up to a given level. Supplemental security income (SSI) will then add to that income. Therefore, in being able to take advantage of this program, you will need to meet its financial eligibility requirements, which will vary from state to state, given any contribution your state government may make to your income.

 

It is extremely important to note that, upon your application for social security based on your disability, if you have a diagnosis, you should have a presumptive disability status, allowing you to get six months of payments pending your application. However the diagnosis must meet certain requirements. For example, if you have been diagnosed with AIDS, having a T cell level that is under 200 in and of itself will not be sufficient to qualify, and disability will have to be demonstrated.
