Social Security Disability in North Hempstead, NY

Qualifications to receive SSI and SSDI benefits in North Hempstead

In This Section:


Social Security Disability Insurance in North Hempstead is paid to workers who are considered "disabled" by the Social Security Administration with either a mental or physical health condition which is so severe the worker is not able to perform substantial gainful activity (SGA) for at least 12 continuous months.

Not all disabled workers will qualify for North Hempstead SSDI. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is offered to North Hempstead workers who have worked jobs "covered" by Social Security and who have paid enough in payroll taxes to be considered "insured" by the Social Security Administration. The amount of work credits needed to be insured will vary based on the workers age at disability, but workers will generally need 20 to 40 work credits to qualify.

North Hempstead SSDI is awarded to help the primary wage earner of the family replace their wages if they die or are unable to work. North Hempstead Social Security Disability Insurance can also be paid as auxiliary benefits to qualifying widows, children, and widowers of the SSDI recipient. North Hempstead Social Security Disability Insurance claimants may also receive Medicare coverage 24 months after the onset date of disability.

Do all disabled workers receive SSDI? No, claimants who have not worked, who have worked but not paid taxes or who have not worked outside of the home will not qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in New York.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI), however, is another benefits program paid to the blind, aged (65 years or older) or disabled but is only awarded to claimants whose resources and income are below the levels allowed by the SSA. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claimants may also be eligible for Medicaid, in most states, at the time of approval.
