Social Security Disability (SSD)
Social Security Administration Disability Benefits—often referred to as SSD or SSDI—are monthly payments issued to you because you have some type of impairment that prevents you from participating in the workforce, be it physical, psychological, or both. The Social Security Administration—often referred to as SSA—evaluates your right to receive these monthly payments based on several things, but most important are:
- The severity of your impairment
- The length of time your disability is expected to last
- Your inability to work
- Your work history
SSD / SSDI is funded by payroll taxes, and some people are reluctant to apply for benefits because of a misunderstanding that they would somehow be taking away from others if approved. But that isn’t the case at all. It’s a federally funded program designed to help people just like you.
Applications for SSD claims can be difficult to file, though. This is the government after all. And it’s estimated that over 60% of initial applications are denied. Even if you have a valid case, your application could still be rejected because of a very small technicality.
