Many young adults with autism not getting the support they need

SSA looks into considering local conditions for SSD applicants

Social Security Disability Insurance is an important program that provides essential financial support to individuals throughout Michigan and through the country who cannot work due to a disability. With strict regulations in place that are reviewed regularly, the Social Security Administration has tried to come up with guidelines that are fair and accurate in determining who truly needs benefits. However, recent information garnered from a government audit may be prompting the administration to take another look at parts of its policy.

How much do I need to have worked in order to qualify for SSDI?

As you probably already know, the Social Security Disability Insurance program is only for Americans who have accumulated a sufficient number of work credits by working and contributing payroll taxes. But the number of work credits that are required depends on several factors, including your age and when you became disabled.

Tax considerations when receiving SSDI

Social Security Disability Insurance benefits provide disabled workers a source of income when there is no access to other revenue sources. However, SSDI benefits are subject to taxation. The government supplies recipients with a Form SSA-1099 documenting the amount of benefits received.
