Applying for Social Security Disability
In order to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you must have physical and/or mental health problems severe enough to keep you from working a regular paying job for at least 12 months. The Social Security Administration uses extensive regulations to decide if you qualify for benefits. Your age, medical condition, skill set, training and work experience all will be taken into consideration.
Visit the Social Security Administration website to apply for Social Security Disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income.
Denied SSDI Benefits? Call Ken Nunn!
Many times, applicants are denied Social Security the first time they apply. Unfortunately, that’s just part of the process, but that doesn’t mean you don’t qualify. Don’t be discouraged! A denial just means it’s time to file an appeal. The Social Security Administration requires a benefits appeal be filed within 60 days of the date you received your denial. Don’t hesitate, I’m just a phone call away!
