Social Security Disability
To obtain Social Security Disability benefits, you must be able to show that you have a qualifying physical and/or mental disability that is expected to significantly impair your ability to work for at least 12 months or that may cause death.
A physical disability may include an injury, disease or other physical impairment.
It is common for a disabled person to have his or her application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) denied. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has very specific definitions about whether a claimant is “disabled.” A disabled person may be denied benefits if SSA thinks the disability may end within a year, if the SSA failed to obtain all of the necessary medical records, or for any number of other reasons. The fact is that many disabled Indiana workers are initially denied SSDI or SSI benefits for which they qualify under the law.
