“What Determines the Amount of SSD Income”

The article gives a fresh outlook to anyone looking for information on social security disability income. It answers questions directly and explains tangled issues in a simple, direct way.

The article, "Social Security Disability Income – SSDI", posted November 17, briefly explains the process on the application for social security disability income. It tells readers how the system works and what to expect in the process.

The article reiterated the goal of the SSDI program, which is to provide insured individuals to receive benefits early if they become disabled or unable to work. According to the article, the amount of benefit one can receive is equivalent to the amount one is currently slated to receive in retirement. To know the exact dollar amount, one has to contact the social security office.

The basic social security disability process goes as follows:

  1. At the initial stage, an application is forwarded to the state agency offices like the disability determination services, the bureau of disability determination, or the disability determination division.
  2. The application paper will be received by the agency and assigned to a specialist known as an examiner, who will request for your medical record to begin his determination process.
  3. If your case is approved, you will be notified by mail.
  4. If your disability application is denied, you have 60 days to make an appeal by making a request for reconsideration.
You have the option to engage the services of a disability lawyer to facilitate the process of your application and appeal. A disability lawyer knows how the system works and has probably all the necessary documents requirements ready for you to accomplish.
