Experienced Colorado Attorney for SSDI Benefits
If you have suffered an injury or are living with an illness that does not allow you to work, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This program provides qualified individuals with a range of financial and medical benefits.
At the Denver law firm of Bohm Matsen, LLP, we assist clients throughout Colorado with SSDI matters. Our Denver Social Security Disability attorney, Mike Kalish, can work with you to understand the specific process that the Social Security Administration (SSA) uses to determine eligibility. He can also guide you through the process, from filing an initial application to a disability appeal, if necessary.
How to Qualify for SSDI
Some people do not realize that if they have received regular paychecks from their employers, they have already paid money into the Social Security system. Now they just have to convince the SSA that they deserve to receive it back.
In order for the SSA to qualify you for benefits, your particular disability must either be terminal or expected to last a year or more. Depending on your age, you also need to have worked for approximately 5 of the past 10 years. If the SSA accepts your claim, you will begin receiving a monthly check. The amount of these payments can vary from person to person, depending upon how much you earned and how long you were employed. In addition, your SSDI benefits include Medicare insurance.
