Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

Under SSDI, payments for disability are initiated from the sixth month of disability.  this means that you need to be disabled for at least five months before the first payment is made.  Once initiated, the payments will keep coming for as long as your condition prevents you from working.

The benefits are paid on a monthly basis.  The date on which you receive the benefits is derived from the birth date of the person whose work record has been used to compute the benefits.  If your work record has been used, then your birth date will be used to determine the day on which you receive the benefits.  If you are receiving benefits based on the work record of your spouse, then your spouse’s birth date will be used.

The benefits,  factor in the cost of living. Each year the benefit amount is adjusted so that it keeps up with the cost of living.  This occurs every January.  If the cost of living rises by 5%, the benefit amount too is increased by the same percentage.  With the increase you will receive notice explaining how the new figure has been derived.

You become eligible for Medicare after receiving benefits for 24 months.  You will be informed about Medicare months before the coverage begins.  For certain conditions, your Medicare coverage can begin almost immediately.  These conditions include permanent kidney failure that has left you dependent on dialysis or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
