Available Social Security Disability Benefits

Serving the Maryland, Virginia & Washington, D.C. Areas

If you’re disabled and can no longer work, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). SSD benefits can provide you with regular income to support your family and Medicare benefits to help cover your medical expenses.

At ChasenBoscolo, we’re here to help you get the SSD benefits you need. If you’re preparing to file for benefits or you’ve been denied in the past, speak with our Social Security Disability lawyers about your claim today. Just dial (800) 322-3380 anytime, or complete a free contact request form to get the legal help you deserve.

Determining Your SSD Benefits Payments

Your potential SSD benefits are based on your:

  • age,
  • income,
  • projected date of retirement,
  • and work history.

You can use the SSA’s online benefits calculator to help predict your potential SSD payments based on these factors.

SSD Benefits and Health Insurance Coverage

Most SSD recipients become eligible for health insurance coverage under Medicare after 24 months of receiving SSD benefits. The 24-month waiting period begins on your SSD benefit date of entitlement—this is the date you claim your disability began plus 5 months.

Certain severe disabilities such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and end-stage renal disease may qualify you for Medicare as soon as you begin receiving SSD benefits. These types of disabilities are known as compassionate allowances.

You may also be eligible to receive health insurance coverage through Medicaid based on your income and the state where you live. If you’re receiving Supplemental Security Income benefits in addition to SSD benefits, you automatically qualify to receive health coverage through Medicaid.
