Work History and SSDI: What You Need to Know
As a Memphis disability lawyer, I know a lot of people apply for disability without really knowing what the application requires. In particular, work history plays an important part in your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claim. Understanding how work history and SSDI relate to each other will help you understand whether or not you’re insured.
How SSDI and Work History Impact Each Other
Social Security Disability is an insurance plan you pay into as you work. So the years you’ve worked and the amount you made show how much you’ve paid into the system, or how insured you are.
In order to receive Social Security Disability, you need to have worked long enough or be paid enough based on your income to be considered currently and fully insured.
Fortunately, that usually doesn’t mean you need decades of employment or a large sum of money. It does mean you will need to prove some work experience so the SSA knows you qualify.
