Social Security Disability in Henderson, NV

Qualifications to receive SSI and SSDI benefits in Henderson
To qualify for Social Security Disability in Henderson claimants must have a severe health condition which is expected to last for at least 12 continuous months or result in their death. Workers must also be unable to perform SGA or substantial gainful activity, which the Social Security Administration considers making more than $1,000 per month (in 2011).

Disability claimants must also be considered insured by the SSA, which means they must have worked jobs “covered” by Social Security and paid enough in payroll taxes to earn work credits. Most workers will need approximate 20-40 work credits to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Henderson, although the specific amount of credits needed varies based on the age of the claimant.

Claimants who qualify for SSDI in Henderson may also receive Medicare coverage 24 months after the onset date of disability. Auxiliary SSDI benefits may also be paid to the dependents or the spouses of the Henderson SSDI recipient, under certain conditions.

What if you do not have enough work credits to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance? Henderson claimants who have not worked or who have not paid taxes will not qualify for Henderson SSDI. The Federal Government does, however, offer monthly cash assistance benefits to the aged (65 years or older), the blind, or the disabled who have very limited income and resources. SSI claimants may also be eligible for Medicaid at the time of approval in most states.
