Understanding SSDI and SSI
To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must have worked long enough and recently enough under Social Security. You can earn a maximum of four work credits per year. The amount of earnings required to receive each credit increases yearly as general wage levels rise. Generally, you need 20 credits in the 10 years ending with the year you become disabled. Younger workers may qualify with fewer credits. There is an additional requirement that you have a minimum number of credits in your life, which is fewer for younger workers, but is never more than the 40 required for full retirement.
In the event that your earning capacity is lost due to disability, you may be entitled to receive Social Security disability benefits including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Social Security Income (SSI). Depending on the severity of your disability, you may be able to receive benefits that would amount to what you would have received for a full retirement.
While the process may seem as simple as "I worked now I can collect", that is rarely the case. SSDI/SSI claims cases can be very complex, requiring the assistance of an attorney who is familiar with Social Security disability law. Our attorneys will do whatever it takes to ensure you are in a position to receive the full benefits you deserve.
