Social Security Disability in Chandler, Arizona

Get Your SSDI and SSI Disability Benefits Insurance in Chandler

In This Section:


Claimants may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Chandler (SSDI) if they are disabled with a severe medical condition which is expected to last for at least 12 continuous months and does not allow the claimant to perform substantial gainful activity (SSGA).

Not all workers qualify for Chandler SSDI benefits. To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Chandler a worker must pay taxes and accumulate 20-40 work credits during their employment. Generally, a full-time worker can earn 4 credits per year. The amount of work credits need to qualify for Arizona SSDI will vary based on the age of the worker at the time they become disabled.

Widows, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old, who were disabled prior to the age of 22, may also be able to receive Social Security Disability dependent benefit payments if the primary wage earner in their family qualifies for SSDI or is deceased and was receiving SSDI at the time of their death.

Workers who have not worked or who have not paid sufficient payroll taxes will not qualify for SSDI in Chandler. The Federal Government does offer another disability program called Supplemental Security Income or SSI for the aged (65 years or older), the disabled or the blind who have very limited income and resources. In many states, claimants who receive Supplemental Security Income may also qualify for Medicaid.
