Thousands die waiting for Social Security Disability decisions

People who file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are unable to work to earn money, so they seek the benefits from a program that they paid in to while they did work. Sadly, some applicants never see a penny of that money because they pass away while they're facing the appeal process.

Why is it so hard to get Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability is often misunderstood. It's an important protection for people who have worked and earned these benefits. The program is designed to cover disabled workers, as well as their dependents, and to make sure they have the income they need after a serious injury.

Social Security Disability: A confusing application or appeal

Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income can both be fantastic ways to support yourself if you're living with a disability. Social Security Disability Insurance covers you if you've become disabled after you worked long enough and paid enough in Social Security taxes. On the other hand, Supplemental Security Income is designed to provide benefits to people who become disabled before they can do so.

Get the right information together before applying for SSDI

Not everyone who has a disability can qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). It's only those who are unable to work or have any truly gainful activity who can apply for and be awarded Social Security Disability (SSD).
