Medical conditions that qualify for SSD

CNBC reports that every year SSDI distributes $143 billion to over 11 million Americans who are unable to work. Claims continue to increase in spite of warnings that the Social Security trust is about to run out in roughly fifteen years. Because of this, Mississippi residents who need to file for social security disability benefits may dread the process and fear possible rejection. After all, only 36 percent of claims are approved.

What is Supplemental Security Income?

Like many Mississippi residents, you may have heard about recent changes to Social Security benefits, including Supplemental Security Income amounts. If you want to know whether this may affect your personal income, it is essential to understand exactly what Supplemental Security Income is. According to the Social Security Administration, which administers the program, Supplemental Security Income provides financial benefits to eligible people who are disabled or blind.

A closer look at eligibility requirements for spousal benefits

The Social Security program is a valuable resource for many families in Mississippi, particularly those who run into unexpected circumstances that compromise their financial security and well-being. Spousal benefits are a unique aspect of the Social Security program and those who are interested have to meet specific criteria in order to be eligible to begin receiving benefits. 

SSDI benefits and the Trial Work Period

If you have been injured at work or developed a health condition due to something in the environment at your place of work, you are not alone. Many people in Mississipi find themselves facing this type of situation every year. You might even have developed a medical condition or a disability not associated with your workplace that renders you unable to work for at least some period of time. These are just some of the situations that may make you eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
