Filing for SSDI/SSI following a Back Injury

Filing for SSDI/SSI following a Back Injury

Filing for Supplement Security Income or Social Security Disability Insurance is a huge step in one’s life to be able to be insured when one cannot work. There are many disabilities, injuries, and other aspects that can keep certain people from performing their jobs. One common injury that is very painful and can seriously affects one’s life are back injuries.

Social Security Disability Insurance

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are benefits that you can receive when you meet the requirements of having an SSA-defined disability, as well as having enough work credits. All applicants must be younger than age 65. Based on an applicant’s work record, they might also be able to provide their spouse and children with SSDI benefits.

Supplement Security Income

Supplement Security Income (SSI) are benefits that are based on your needs, not your work credits. Applicants for SSI must be over the age of 65 and suffering from a disability. Following this disability, and applicant must prove that the disability is causing the person to receive less income and have limited resources.

Supplement Security Income & Social Security Disability Insurance following a Back Injury

Disabilities that qualify for receiving SSDI and SSI benefits range widely. This can include any bone or nerve damage that seriously restricts you from working. This can include spinal fusion, chronic headaches, lower back pains, spinal injuries, and back frame damages. There are many disabilities that can qualify for these benefits, but they must fit the specific “disability” definition that the SSA follows.

The SSA requires that the disability is medically determinable. This means your condition must be diagnosed. The disability that one has when applying for these benefits also must restrict the person from substantial activity. Moreover, if the back injury is diagnosed and has limited you substantially from activities, you can qualify for SSI or SSDI.
