Detroit Social Security Disability Qualifications

You know you can’t work. You tried to keep working, even with bad health. But it just got too hard.

What a relief it would be to get monthly checks from Social Security disability. It would save your independence.

Those facts alone, however, don’t mean you’ll automatically win benefits.

Social Security is a massive government agency with thousands of rules, a strict definition of “disability,” and a complex legal system that decides who gets financial assistance.

The attorneys at Levine Benjamin can help you figure out if you qualify for disability income.

We’ll evaluate your case for free.

What Types of Disability Benefits Can I Get?

Depending on your work history and financial situation, you could qualify for these disability programs:

  • SSDI: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) could help you (and possibly family members) if you meet three qualifications: 1) Health problems keep you from working; 2) You’ve paid enough in Social Security taxes; 3) You’ve worked for at least five of the 10 years prior to the start of your disability.
  • SSI: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) doesn’t require work and tax history. It can help if your income and resources are limited and you can’t work because of health problems. If you have a child who’s blind or has a disability, you also could receive benefits for them.

For both programs, your medical condition must meet Social Security’s definition of a disability:

  • You can’t work your most recent job.
  • You can’t work any other job.
  • Your condition will last at least a year—or lead to death.
The Detroit Social Security Disability qualifications cover many medical impairments.

You can qualify for Social Security disability benefits with many different medical impairments.

Does My Medical Condition Qualify for Disability Benefits?

Social Security has a list of impairments that can officially qualify you for disability benefits. But really, any physical or mental health condition severe enough to prevent you from working qualifies.

This includes all these common conditions:

Sometimes people wait to apply for disability benefits, wondering if their health condition is bad enough, or whether they’ll eventually return to work.

But if you wait too long, you could miss out on benefits you should receive.

Let Levine Benjamin determine if you have a disability case or not.

You can always return to work later. But it can take a long time to get your benefits approved, so the sooner you start, the better.

We don’t charge any attorney fee unless you win.
