Social Security Disability in Virginia Beach, VA

Qualifications to receive SSI and SSDI benefits in Virginia Beach

In This Section:


Are you disabled and unable to work? Is your disabling health condition expected to last for at least 12 continuous months? If yes, you may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in Virginia Beach.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) was created by the Federal Government to provide wage replacement benefits for the primary wage earner of a family who has been determined disabled by the Social Security Administration.

Works must also have worked and earned "work credits" working jobs which are covered by Social Security and paying employment taxes. Most full-time Virginia Beach workers can earn 4 credits per year, and claimants need approximate 20-40 work credits to qualify for SSDI in Virginia Beach. Contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to find out if you have enough work credits to qualify for Virginia Beach SSDI.

SSDI auxiliary benefits may also be provided to the SSDI recipient's dependants and spouse (under certain conditions), including Widows, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old (who were disabled prior to the age of 22).

What if you have not worked or worked and not paid taxes? Unfortunately, you will not qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Virginia Beach. The Federal Government does, however, provide monthly cash assistance to the disabled, blind or aged (age 65 and older), through the Supplemental Security Income or SSI program. Claimants must also have very limited income and resources. Claimants who are approved for Supplemental Security Income may also qualify for Medicaid, in most states, at the time of their approval.
