About SSDI Eligibility

In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits:

  • You need to have a long enough employment history at jobs where you paid Social Security taxes
  • You must be unable to perform any type of substantial work as defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA)
  • You must meet the SSA’s criteria for medical disability

When submitting an initial application or filing an appeal, there is a significant amount of paperwork that must be filled out and filed on time. If your initial application was denied, your appeal must be submitted within 60 days of receiving your denial. No matter what stage your claim is in, our attorneys can handle every aspect and ensure no details go overlooked.
