What Is An SSD Claim?
An SSD claim is a type of Social Security Disability (SSD) claim that is filed by an individual who is disabled and unable to work. The Social Security Administration (SSA) assesses the individual’s disability and determines whether they are eligible to receive SSD benefits. SSD claims can be filed by individuals through their local Social Security office or through a disability lawyer.
Qualifying for an SSD Claim
In order to be eligible for an SSD claim, an individual must be unable to perform any substantial gainful activity due to their disability. This means that they must be unable to work and earn a living wage due to the disability. Furthermore, the disability must be expected to last for at least 12 months or result in death. The individual must also have worked long enough and recently enough to be covered under Social Security.
The Process of Applying for an SSD Claim
In order to apply for an SSD claim, an individual must fill out an application and submit it to the SSA. The application must include detailed information about the individual’s medical condition and work history. The SSA will review the application and, if approved, will begin to process the claim. The process can take several months and may involve several appeals. The individual may also be required to attend an in-person interview.
Receiving an SSD Claim
If an individual is approved for an SSD claim, they will begin to receive monthly benefits from the SSA. These benefits are intended to help the individual pay for basic living expenses such as food, rent, and medical bills. The amount of benefits an individual receives is based on their work history and the severity of their disability.
