Determining SSDI eligibility can be challenging

Knowing that you are under the legal age of retirement but are unable to work due to injury or illness may cause you to worry about your future, especially if you happen to be the sole breadwinner in your family. The U.S. government understands the need to help workers who are no longer able to carry out their duties or earn income because of physical or mental disability. The Social Security Disability Insurance program works to provide benefits to sick or injured workers who satisfy qualification requirements. 

What evidence is required when applying for SSDI benefits?

Friends, family or others may have told you that obtaining benefits from the Social Security disability insurance program is nearly impossible. It is true that many people receive denials of their initial applications, and this is due, at least in part, to the fact that the Social Security Administration remains sensitive to fraudulent claims. They tend to err on the side of denial rather than granting an unnecessary request for benefits.

One small tick bite can take a huge bite out of your life

Going before a judge to get the disability benefits you need
