My Injury Is Keeping From Work. Can I Collect SSDI Or SSI Benefits?
In America, almost 50 million people have a disability that keeps them from work. They include physical problems and mental issues. There are about one million people who live with a disability; and approximately two million that have a functional disability.
We all strive to live a full life, but if you cannot earn money and you cannot support yourself or your family, it can change your life. There are barriers to getting the money you need. There are two programs, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), available to help. Our legal team at Midwest Disability, P.A., can help too.
You Could Spend A Significant Time Without An Income
In South Carolina, thousands of people are waiting to hear about their disability claim. They often expect the process will take months, but it usually takes more than a year. That is significant when a two-income family suddenly must depend on a single paycheck. Or, worse, when a single income family is completely cutoff.
Dedicated To Finding SSDI And SSI Solutions
The initial application process usually takes about three to four months. However, almost 70 percent of those applications are denied. The first step in the appeal process is to file a Request for Reconsideration, but almost 80 percent of those requests are also denied, and they must go to at a disability hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.
It can take almost a year and half to get a hearing date, and then an additional two to three months to get a judgment. The time for the whole process in South Carolina – almost two years.
