    • Hi Cesar. We pay disability benefits through two programs: the Social Security Disability Insurance program (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. To qualify for SSDI benefits, you must have worked long enough and recently enough in jobs covered by Social Security (usually within the last 10 years). The (SSI) program is a needs based program that gives cash assistance to disabled individuals with limited income and resources. We pay disability benefits to people who are unable to work because of a medical condition that is expected to last one year or more or to end in death. If you think you may be eligible to receive disability benefits and would like to apply, you can use our online application.

    • Hi, Alex. We are sorry to hear about your condition. Disability benefits are paid to people who are unable to work because of a medical condition that is expected to last one year or more, or to result end in death. For adults, we use a five-step evaluation process to decide whether you are disabled. We consider any current work activity you are doing, your medical condition, and how it affects your ability to work. For more information about disability and how to apply, visit here. We hope this helps.

  5. I applied for both SSDI and Early retirement at the same time back on July 22, 2020. My SSDI was approved in just 9 days and says it starts paying early next year (5 month wait). I was told that I could collect my early retirement money while waiting for the SSDI to start which is why I filed both at once.

    Today was the day that I expected my first check for early retirement but nothing. Do I need to file for the early retirement again ???
