Social Security disability program SSDI

The  Social Security disability program SSDI  for an average family is equivalent to a private disability insurance policy worth over $233,000.  Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. ( #10029)

Once you have received Disability benefits for two years you will automatically be covered under Medicare  Parts A & B # 10029 * (there is a $148 premium for Part B – If you are low income there may be ways to get that paid for you) and we can then help you enroll in a

Medicare Advantage Plan (NO PREMIUM!), Part D Rx and Medicare Supplemental Medi-Gap Plans.

  1. Social security & workers comp

    I need help with my social security benefits, I have been receiving SS [SSDI?] for over 10 yrs now but only receive $765.00 and $1 for each child, something has to be wrong.

    I was a nurse back in 2007 got injured on the job in 2008…

    I also need help with my workers comp claim which has been in effect since 2008 but I’ve received nothing from them since please help me in any way you can,

    Thank you
    Miss T

  2. I’m 66 on sick leave and not retired yet.

    Can I qualify for SSDI.

    I don’t want to start regular Social Security until I’m 67 in February 2020

  3. Due to a disabling work accident, I retired at age 60 in 2015 and started receiving Social Security Disability benefits.

    I thought the MPIPHP pension/health plan included a prescription plan, making Medicare Part D unnecessary.

    However, my most recent SSDI 1099 indicates $403 was deducted for Part D. Before I spend a few days on hold with SSI, can you please set me straight?

  4. I am “Retired with Disability” from CalStrs

    I also have enough quarters in to get some social security.

    Since I am disabled, can I get SSDI and then Medicare insurance?

    I am 58-yrs old.
