Millions work their entire lives paying into the Social Security system. In the unfortunate event they become disabled, they expect to receive the benefits for which they have already paid.

Sadly, the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies the majority of initial claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. To make matters worse, an appeal can take months—or even years.

About Social Security Disability

The SSA provides SSDI benefits to those who are disabled and can no longer work because of an impairment. To qualify, the disability must be expected to last for more than one year—or result in the claimant’s death. Benefits may also be available to family members of the disabled, including:

  • Spouses: Spouses 62 or older may qualify—as may spouses of any age if they care for the child of a beneficiary. The child of the beneficiary must be 16 or younger or disabled.
  • Divorced Spouses: Under certain circumstances, A divorced spouse 62 or older may qualify for benefits if they were married to the beneficiary for at least 10 years and are not remarried.
  • Children: Natural and adopted children, stepchildren, and grandchildren under 18 may qualify. An unmarried child 18 or older with a disability that started before 22 may also qualify.
