We are all in danger of becoming disabled at any time, as frightening as it may appear. Whether through illness or injury, disabilities can leave us unable to provide for ourselves and our family.

In such cases, you may face a disability that may impair your ability to earn an income, and therefore try to push for benefits. Nevertheless, obtaining such benefits will require you to subject yourself to a rigorous administrative process in order to qualify for SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) or SSI (Supplemental Security Insurance). It is also possible that your claim is denied, even with all the necessary documentation provided during this process.

To appeal such decisions, you will definitely need the assistance of an experienced SSDI lawyer in Arizona to guide you through.

What is a Disability?

The United States government provides financial benefits for those who are disabled through the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA has defined a “disability” as:

“The inability to engage in substantial gainful activity due to a medically determinable impairment that has lasted or is expected to last a minimum of 12 months or result in death.”

If you or a loved one suffer from a physical or mental disability that has left you unable to work, you may be entitled to receive benefits.

Types of Disability Benefits

Currently, the government offers two main types of benefits:

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD)
  • Earned Benefit: SSDI is a benefit earned through income tax contributions.

  • Measurement by Payment Duration: Eligibility is determined by the duration of payments into the system, typically assessed by the number of quarters contributed annually.

  • Independent of Financial Status: Eligibility for SSDI is based on contribution history, not on the individual’s current financial situation.
  • Inclusive of Legal Permanent Residents: Legal permanent residents who have contributed for the required length of time are also eligible for SSDI benefits.

Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI)
  • Eligibility for Those with Limited Financial Resources: SSI is designed for individuals who have minimal financial resources. This includes not just income from employment or other sources but also the value of assets owned.

  • Assistance for Disability-Related Unemployment: SSI aids those who can’t work due to various disabilities, both physical and mental

  • Wider Access: SSI eligibility doesn’t require a work history or Social Security contributions, offering access to a larger group

  • Covers Disabled, Blind, Elderly: Benefits extend to the disabled, blind, and those over 65.

Understanding Our Disability Attorneys’ Essential Support

Receiving SSD or SSI benefits can be very essential to a claimant’s future health and life, as it can also make them eligible for Medicare or other medical coverage.

As these benefits can be hard to obtain, the process you would have to subject yourself to can be tedious and cumbersome. This is where a Social Security Disability attorney can guide you through, and work on your application and subsequent appeal and handle all the aspects of this process.

Who is Eligible for Disability Benefits?

SSD requires 40 work credits, with twenty credits earned within the last 10 years. As long as you qualify for SSD, you may also be entitled to monetary compensation, with benefits of up to one-half of your disability amount can be paid monthly to your spouse or children.
