Social Security Disability (SSD) Benefits Overview
Contact The Bernstein Law Offices
Understanding Social Security disability is the first step towards potentially
protecting your financial future following an unexpected accident or illness.
Social Security disability (SSDI) is a federal insurance program that
is funded by payroll-taxes and managed by the Social Security Administration
(SSA). SSDI is designed to help individuals who are suffering from injuries
or illnesses, and prevented from working completely or at a normal capacity
as a result of their condition.
Social Security disability benefits can be supplied either temporarily
or permanently, depending on the nature of the applicant's disability
along with other factors. Applying for benefits is a notoriously complicated
and often drawn-out process. Having a
Maryland Social Security disability lawyer on your side could make all the difference. Whether you are starting the
process for the first time, or your first application was turned down,
the experienced team at The Bernstein Law Offices can offer deliver professional
and skilled legal advice.
Am I eligible for SSDI benefits?
You may be eligible to apply for SSDI benefits if:
- You have a work history and you have paid into the SSDI program through
- You have worked for a certain period of time — at least 5 out of
the last 10 years prior to becoming disabled. If you are under the age
of 32, you will have fewer restrictions.
The amount of SSDI benefits you receive will depend your overall earnings
before your disability. The higher your income, the more money is set
aside into your withholding, which increases your benefit amount.
Providing proper medical records is crucial to a successful application.

documents needed to help strengthen your claim. We are passionate about
