Could injury qualify me or a loved one to receive SSDI?

For anyone who has received a federally taxed paycheck (which is most Anaheim residents), they most likely noticed the portion of wages allotted to federal taxes. While there are several things the federal government removes from most employees' wages, one is contributions to social security. Social security has several uses and is allocated to different people in different ways. One way that federal government allocates Anaheim residents' federal taxes is to those who are need due to injury, including work-related injuries.

For example, if a person is injured to the point that they are unable to work, it could qualify that person to receive a portion of Social Security disability benefits. This is a monetary amount allotted to those who are less fortunate and unable. Without these government regulated benefits, many people who have no means of income to support themselves or loved ones. It's important to know only those who have paid into the system by means of federally taxed wages over an adequate amount of time are eligible for such payments.

There are other requirements one must meet as well including an inability to work for at least one year. The process in which one seeks SSDI benefits involves a lot of paperwork and question answering, some of which must be proven with medical records or even diagnosis. If a person has been denied, it can be appealed.

However, it takes a lot less time and energy to complete the process correctly the first time the first time. The appeals process can be taken, but it certainly will take more time and effort. A work injury, or any disabling injury, is nothing to take lightly. It is something that can affect the injured and loved ones for years to come.
