Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program intended to help individuals who can not work due to a physical or mental condition.  To qualify for SSDI, you must have a severe physical or mental impairment, your impairment must prevent you from any type of gainful work and the impairment must last at least 12 months.  If you feel you are no longer able to perform any type of gainful work due to your condition and the condition has lasted or will last 12 months, then you may apply for SSDI.  To apply, you can visit your local Social Security office, call 800-772-1213 or online at www.ssa.gov.
