Social Security Benefits in Salt Lake City, UT Also Serving Bountiful, Murray, Sandy, Provo, Orem, Tooele, & Surrounding AreasSocial Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) pays monthly cash benefits to people who are unable to work for a year or more because of a disability. After a waiting period, SSDI eligibility also allows you to receive Medicare benefits—even if you are under age 65.To qualify for SSD benefits, you must first have worked in jobs in which you paid the Social Security payroll tax. You must also have a medical condition that meets the Social Security Administration’s definition for disability. Conditions can be physical disabilities or mental disabilities.To obtain Social Security Disability benefits, you need to have medical evidence, but don’t worry about having to collect medical records by yourself. As your Salt Lake Social Security Disability lawyer, it is up to Glen Cook to present your doctors’ reports properly and to convince the government of your SSD eligibility.When Is the Best Time to Take Action?You should apply for SSD as soon as you think your disability will last a full year.
