Michigan State Disability

Are you a resident of Michigan and have been forced to stop working due to injury or illness? You may qualify for Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income benefits. With National Disability Benefits, you can successfully apply for Michigan state disability benefits.

Filing for Michigan state disability

To be considered for disability, you must first file an application. Here are various ways you can file for disability in Michigan:

  1. You can file an application by yourself at the SSA (Social Security Administration) office
  2. You can call the SSA through (800) 772-1213
  3. You can apply via e-mail through www.ssa.gov

To successfully apply for the benefits you need to have all the required information on hand.  These include details on the disability which is hindering you from working, evidence of the medical or psychiatric treatment you have received and details on past employment and earnings. After you have filed the application, it is sent to the DDS (Disability Determination Services) and a claims examiner evaluates it and decides whether you qualify to receive benefits.

Are you curious to know if you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits? If eligible, you could get up to $2,788 a month and get the financial compensation you need.

Am I eligible for benefits?

Only if you have been unable to work and lost wages due to pregnancy, or illness and injury unrelated to work.   

Other requirements you must meet to qualify for benefits include:

  • Not be able to do your routine work for more than a week
  • Own a job or actively look for one at the time the disability starts
  • Have lost wages due to the disability
  • Was under Social Security during employment
  • Should be receiving treatment from a licensed physician/religious practitioner and should remain under the same care to continue receiving the benefits
  • Have to complete and submit your application nine days after the start of your disability and no later than 49 days after
  • A certified medical practitioner or physician should fill the medical certification portion of your application form
  • A nurse may fill this section, but they have to perform a physical exam and collaborate with a licensed practitioner
  • A nurse, midwife or nurse-midwife may fill the section with relation to pregnancy or childbirth-related disability
  • If you receive care under a religious practitioner, you have to fill out form DE 2502 (religious practitioner’s certificate for disability claims) from your local SDI office. This is only accepted if the practitioner is the Employment Development Department certified.

Can I work and receive Social Security benefits?

Typically, as a disability recipient, you cannot start doing what the SSA considers substantial gainful activity (SGA) and still receive the benefits. In 2019, an SGA means making more than $1,220 per month, and if you are blind, $2,040. As a self-employed individual, you can work up to 45 hours per month and still get benefits. This is valid as long as you are not the only person running the business, and you are not making an income that is over the current SGA.
