According to the Social Security Administration, 25% of today’s 20-year-olds will become disabled before age 67. That means one-fourth of Americans will at some point no longer have the ability to work prior to reaching retirement age. Fortunately, the U.S. Social Security program is designed to provide benefits to qualifying U.S. residents who can no longer work due to disability.
If you have become disabled and can no longer work, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. The Pennsylvania Social Security disability lawyers at Rubin & Badame, Attorneys at Law, P.C. can help you find out if you meet the qualifications. If you are eligible, we can help you apply for benefits and make sure you are getting the most out of your benefits.

In order to qualify for Social Security benefits, you must meet several conditions, as set forth by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
To be eligible for SSD benefits, you must:
- Be under the current retirement age
- Have worked jobs long enough and recent enough that are covered by Social Security
- Have a qualifying disability, as defined by the SSA
- Have a disability that is expected to last at least a year or result in death
- Have the required work credits for your age
- Have paid FICA taxes for five of the last 10 years
It is important to know that Social Security benefits will not be awarded to persons who have a partial disability or short-term disability. If you do meet the above requirements, it is time to gather all the necessary documentation. At this point, it is helpful to consult an experienced lawyer who can guide you through the application process. Although denials can sometimes be appealed, it is best to be approved the first time around.
