Social Security Disability
In easy-to-understand, everyday language we'll answer all your questions about Social Security Disability (SSD aka SSDI) benefits. Our SSDI articles and unique question-and-answer forum focus on what matters most to disabled individuals and their families. Our articles, grouped by general category, describe the application process including when and how to file a claim, how to avoid common mistakes, and how to get legal help when you need it. We explain how medical and non-medical eligibility is determined, how to improve chances of approval, how to overturn a denial, and what to expect at a hearing. We also provide downloadable SSDI forms that are commonly used for applications, appeals, and post-entitlement issues as well as key information on topics that matter after you win approval. Post-entitlement topics include how benefits are paid, when and how much you can work, when a representative payee is needed, and whether your family can receive benefits.
