Qualifying for SSD Benefits
SSD benefits are most often associated with disabled adults who can no longer work. But you also may be eligible for benefits if you are the:
- spouse or child of a worker who died.
- dependent parent of a worker who died.
- spouse or child of someone receiving SSD benefits.
The requirements to receive benefits vary based on your individual circumstances. If you have questions about your eligibility, our Michigan Social Security Disability attorneys are here to answer your questions.
Determining Disability Eligibility
If an illness or injury prevents you from working, SSD benefits can provide you with compensation to support yourself and your family. But to receive these benefits, you must be considered disabled by the Social Security Administration.
You may qualify for SSD benefits if you:
- cannot do the work you did before.
- cannot adjust to other work because of your medical conditions.
- have been disabled, or are expected to be disabled, for at least one year or your disability will result in death.
If you aren't sure if you qualify for SSD benefits, give Michigan Injury Lawyers a call today. We're here to help you get the financial support you're owed so you can get your life back.
