If you were forced to take an early retirement due to chronic health problems, you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits. You can qualify even if your company provides you with retirement benefits, or if you already receive long-term disability or Workers' Compensation benefits. You have a good chance of receiving benefits if you meet all the requirements of the Social Security Administration. Fort help with the application process, consult a Dunn Social Security disability attorney.
The 3 key qualifications for Social Security disability benefits require that you:
- must be working below the substantial gainful activity level;
- must have a disability that lasts 12 months or longer; and
- must be insured for the SSDI disability program.
You become insured for early retirement social security disability benefits if you are 60 years old and have worked for at least 10 years, or if you are 50 years old and have 7 years of work experience. On top of that, you must have worked for 5 of the last 10 years.
