Qualifying for benefits and appealing denied claims

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a post about the disability onset date, and how this critical factor is a part of the application process for Social Security disability benefits. Today, we'd like to talk about the application in a general way. There are a lot of factors that go into an individual applying for Social Security Disability Insurance of Supplemental Security Income. Knowing this before "the grind" begins is critical to keeping your spirits up.

Common problems in Social Security Disability benefit applications

If you are struggling with a disability that has prevented you from working for over a year, you might be considering filing for Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits make it possible for disabled individuals to make ends meet while they are dealing with their condition.

Your source of income (and amount) affects your SSI benefits

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a post about Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and how this form of financial benefits is different than Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). There are many differences between the two common forms of Social Security benefits, but today we would like to discuss about one of them in a bit more detail: how income plays a factor in your Supplemental Security Income.

What is the 'disability onset date' and when is mine?

It may seem like an insulting topic on some level, but the Social Security Administration will always try to figure out a disabled person's "disability onset date." This is the date when the individual living with the disability became unable to work as a result of his or her disability. Of course, to the subject of this scenario, the date is all too real -- and in fact, they may have been dealing with the effects of the disability far before the official disability onset date.

How does SSI differ from SSDI?

While there are many things that differentiate Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) -- such as the fact that SSDI is paid for by payroll taxes whereas SSI is paid for by general taxes --there is one main way that these two forms of financial assistance are differentiated: the eligibility requirements.
