Qualifying for Disability Benefits
The government offers benefits to those who have been disabled and need additional income to pay for everyday living expenses, such as food, shelter, and clothing. These benefits come in the form of Social Security Disability Insurance, SSDI, and Supplemental Security Income, SSI.
Even if you have been denied benefits, you may still be eligible to receive them. You have the right to an appeal. In order to be considered disabled by Social Security’s standards, you must meet the following criteria:
- A physical or mental impairment that is expected to last at least a year or expected to result in death
- This impairment must be so severe that you cannot continue with your previous work
- You cannot perform any other substantial gainful work considering your age, education, and experience because of this impairment
