How to Get South Dakota Social Security Disability Benefits

 <a target=South Dakota Social Security" width="428" height="285" />The Social Security Administration offers two programs; Social Security Disability Insurance, which pays benefits to you and particular family members if you're insured, and Supplemental Security Income that pays benefits based on financial need. To receive disability payments from Social Security Income or Social Security Disability Insurance, you must be considered disabled by the SSA (Social Security Administration). Your condition must:

  • Considerably limit your ability to perform basic activities required to work, including retention of information, sitting, walking, and standing.
  • Last a year, or be anticiapted to last a year or cause your death.
  • Hinder you from doing the work you’re qualified for.
  • Be in the Social Security Administration’s listing of impairments.

Often, over half of all the disability benefits applicants are rejected because their ailment doesn't meet the limited SSA's definition of being disabled. If you want to know if you are eligible for South Dakota social security benefits, we at National Disability Benefits can help.

Do You Qualify for Disability Benefits?

When you work and pay your Social Security taxes, you earn Social Security "work credits" that can be used if you need to stop working due to a disability. You generally require 40 credits, 20 of which were earned in the last ten years, ending with the year you became disabled. Your medical condition must also meet Social Security's definition of disability.

Many people are unsure about ailments that qualify them, and so do not go after the disability benefits they deserve. It's, therefore, important to seek help from experts like us at National Disability Benefits to find out if your circumstances qualify for disability benefits. Eligibility for Social Security Income(SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance(SSDI) benefits requires that you show medical reports that verify you have a physical or mental disability and evidence that the disability is life-threatening or has lasted (or will last) for at least a year. Other conditions like respiratory illnesses, immune system disorders, and Degenerative disk disease also qualify for SSDI and SSI.

Applying For Social Security Disability Benefits

You can go online to apply for disability benefits or in person at your local Social Security Administration(SSA) office. If you can't get to an office, you may also call your local SSA to apply over the phone. The process is quite complicated, and it's much easier to file using help from experts like us at National Disability Benefits. This will reduce the stress of determining which programs you qualify for and which benefits you are entitled to. It also reduces delays and denials due to missing information.

You don't need to delay your application for SSDI. The approval process may take time, and although you will only receive benefits after your sixth full month of being disabled, we recommend you apply as soon as you can. This will shorten any waiting period while your application is under review.
