Social Security Disability in Lincoln, NE

Qualifications to receive SSDI and SSI benefits in Lincoln

In This Section:


What do you do if you become disabled and cannot work? If you have worked and paid employment taxes and have earned 20-40 work credits over the course of your employment, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Lincoln, Nebraska. Keep in mind, most full-time workers can earn 4 work credits per year, and the amount of work credits needed to qualify for SSDI in Lincoln may depend on your age at the time of disability.

How do you know if you are disabled? The Social Security Administration has a very strict definition of what they consider disabled. The Social Security Administration will consider you disabled if you have a physical or mental health condition which is so severe that it does not allow you to perform substantial gainful activity (SGA) for at least 12 continuous months or is expected to result in your death. Lincoln SSDI Auxiliary benefits may also be provided, under certain conditions, to the widow, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents of Lincoln SSDI recipients.

Not all disabled workers qualify for SSDI in Lincoln. If you have not worked or paid taxes, you will be denied SSDI benefits. The Federal Government does, however, offer another wage replacement benefits option to the disabled, blind or aged (age 65 and older), who have very limited resources and income. Claimants who are approved for Supplemental Security Income in Lincoln may also qualify for Medicaid.
