Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) programs provide assistance to qualifying people who have been in the workforce and paid social security taxes. If you cannot work due to severe injury or illness spanning one year or more, Social Security Disability Insurance benefits could be available to cover lost wages, on either a temporary or permanent basis.
How Much Money am I Entitled to?
The amount of money you receive in your benefits is determined by how much you paid in payroll taxes while working for an extended period of time–typically 5 of the last 10 years. Our expert advocates at Princeton Disability can help you determine how much money you should be receiving, assist with paperwork and cutting through the red tape, as well as filing effective, efficient appeals.
Is it Worth it to Apply?
Regardless of how stressful it may seem to apply for SSDI, there are a few benefits to being approved. Number one is that, after two years on SSDI, you qualify for Medicare health coverage. If you will be transitioning back into working, it’s possible that you’ll be eligible to receive benefits during that time. Additionally, Social Security Disability benefits can increase each year due to a rising cost-of-living, and your family may qualify for additional benefits.
