Understanding Eligibility for SSDI and SSI Benefits
SSDI and SSI are the two main programs available for disabled citizens who can no longer work. You, a spouse or a disabled parent could qualify for the earned benefits of SSDI. The benefits available are based on total hours previously worked and the amount of earnings paid into social security over your career.
On the other hand, SSI benefits are not based on work but financial need. Those most eligible for SSI are blind, disabled or 65 and older with little to no income or monetary resources. Spouses or dependent children are not eligible to receive any provisions under this program.
Two thirds of applicants to social security benefits are denied the first time and even once your benefits have been approved, it’s common for individual’s benefits to be terminated. A social security benefits attorney can submit the proof needed to show that you truly need SSDI or SSI benefits. The experienced attorneys like those at The Law Offices of Daniel S. Draper work with clients from Racine to sort through assets, find the best programs and resubmit claims to the Social Security Office to improve chances of approval during the appeals process.
