Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): What You Need to Know
Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) is a federal program that pays out financial benefits to qualified individuals who are no longer able to work full-time due to an illness or medical condition. To be clear, not everyone is eligible to make an SSDI claim. Benefits are only payable to people who are ‘insured’—meaning they have a sufficient work history and have paid into the program.
From there, an applicant who makes a claim must satisfy both medical and technical requirements. In other words, they must produce evidence that proves that they have a disability/medical condition that keeps them from working, that they have paid into the system, and that they are not currently earning a significant income through substantial gainful activity.
How to Appeal a Social Security Disability Denial
Unfortunately, getting SSDI benefits can be difficult—even for qualified applicants. The Social Security Administration (SSA) reports that only around 30 percent of disability claims are approved after a first-time review. Though, many more SSDI claims are eventually approved on appeal. If your claim was rejected, do not give up.
As a general rule, applicants have 60 days to appeal an adverse Social Security disability denial. To do so, you should submit a request for reconsideration. You can submit supplemental evidence and have the SSA take a fresh look at your claim. If unsuccessful at the reconsideration stage, your claim may need to be appealed to an administrative law judge (ALJ), an appeals council, or a federal court.
