IF YOU HAVE A DISABILITY AND ARE ENTITLED TO SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY, WHO MAKES THE DECISION ON YOUR BENEFITS AND APPEALS?
Completing a disability claim can be a lengthy process. To be considered disabled for social security purposes and receive benefits, you must be unable to do any substantial work because of your physical or mental condition(s); and your physical or mental condition(s) must last, or be expected to last, at least 12 months (1 year), or be a terminal illness that is expected to result in your death.
Medical evidence (treatment records and diagnostic tests) is required to support your disability claim. Social Security Disability benefits are awarded only to people judged to be totally disabled. There is no provision for “partial” Social Security and Disability benefits through the social security administration.
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFIT TYPES
Claimants may receive two types of Social Security Administration benefits:
• Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are benefits for people who have not worked enough to be considered “insured” for SSDI purposes, and who currently have little or no income and resources.
• Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), are benefits for “insured” workers, their disabled surviving spouses and children (disabled before age 22) or disabled, retired or deceased workers;
