We get what people with disabilities are going through.
To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), an individual must have worked and paid into the program (payroll taxes) for five of the last 10 years preceding your patient's disability.
Individuals also must have been disabled before reaching full-retirement age (65-67), and must meet Social Security's definition of disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses a process called sequential evaluation to determine who receives benefits.
