Understanding Eligibility Requirements Prior to Filing for SSDI

Although it is not mandatory that applicants fully understand all of the outlined eligibility requirements for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) prior to filing a claim, it is helpful to have at least a basic knowledge of the guidelines so that one does not feel blind-sided by an initial claim denial in the event that this occurs.

Often times, applicants get approved through the appeals process after first being denied benefits; however, for many the frustration of not being approved the first time deters them from appealing their claim on time forcing them to reapply . Those who are more familiar with the factors considered in determining eligibility are less likely to make a decision altering error in their initial application, appeal or even reapplication.

Individuals who qualify for SSDI must typically meet the following guidelines:

• Be determined to have a mental or physical disability according to the standards outlined by the Social Security Administration (SSA)

• Have a qualifying disability that lasts a minimum of 12 months or longer, or be expected to result in a fatality

• Have accumulated a qualifying number of Social Security credits from working

• Be under the age of 65

Other conditions may have an impact on whether one may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance. A qualified attorney who specializes in this area of practice or a professional Social Security Disability advocate can provide individuals with support for understanding eligibility requirements prior to filing a claim, or at any stage of the application process.

The Social Security Disability advocates of Wright & Wright, America’s Social Security Disability Firm™ can offer a free consultation to individuals with questions pertaining to filing for Social Security benefits. More information about the firm can be found by visiting
