Types of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits

Our Virginia SSDI Lawyers Can Help

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are awarded to individuals who become disabled and are no longer capable of working. To qualify for these benefits, which are funded by Social Security taxes, you must have a qualifying physical or mental impairment. This disability must be expected to result in death, or has lasted or is expected to last at least one continuous year.

Many legitimate candidates are initially denied SSDI benefits. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, our caring and thorough Virginia attorneys will help you through the appeals process to ensure you get the disability benefits you deserve. Get started by calling (855) 880-8163 to set up your free consultation.

Types of SSDI Benefits

Four major types of Social Security benefits include:

  • Disability Insurance Benefits: The most common Social Security benefits, disability insurance benefits are issued to those who have worked at least five out the last 10 years, and who are now disabled. If your claim is denied, you have about two months to appeal and ask for a hearing to present your claim to an administrative law judge.
  • Disabled Adult Child Benefits: If you are age 18 or older and have become disabled before age 22, you may be able to collect disabled adult child benefits if your parents are entitled to retirement or disability benefits. In cases of deceased parents, the guardian must have worked long enough under Social Security for you to be eligible to collect survivor benefits. These benefits are called disabled adult "child" benefits because they are paid on your parent's Social Security earnings record.
  • Disabled Widow's/Widower's Benefits: If you are age 50 or older and become disabled within seven years of your husband or wife’s death, you may be able to collect disability benefits. Your late spouse must have worked the specified amount time in order for you to be eligible to collect benefits.
  • Child SSDI Benefits: Benefits may also be paid to the child of a disabled adult if that child is under the age of 18, or between 18 and 19 years old and is a full-time high school student. These benefits are also paid on the parent’s Social Security record.
