You may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits if you have a medical condition which prevents you from being able to work. In order to qualify, your medical condition must be expected to last, or have lasted, for at least one year, or result in death.
At Metzger Wickersham, our Wilkes-Barre attorneys have been helping clients for over 130 years. We have an in-depth understanding of Social Security Disability law and a lengthy track record of success. We can help you make well-informed decisions about the future as we guide you throughout each step of the process. You can trust our attorneys to provide you with the capable and caring advocacy you deserve.
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.
