One of the most important things to remember about qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits is that you must be unable to work in order to qualify. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a very strict definition of disability, which is that you must be unable to do “substantial gainful activity” (SGA). This means that you must not be able to earn more than a certain amount of money each month.
In order to qualify for SSDI benefits, you must meet two requirements. The first is that you must have worked and paid Social Security taxes for a certain number of years. The second is that you must be unable to work due to a medical condition.

There are a number of factors that the SSA will consider when determining whether you are disabled. These include your age, your work history, the severity of your medical condition, and whether you can do any type of work.
If you are considering applying for SSDI benefits, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney. Collins Disability Law can help you understand the eligibility requirements and can assist you with the application process.
