Wyoming Social Security Disability Insurance
When your health gets in the way of your ability to work, you face more than just a disability—the financial impact can be devastating. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) can help. But getting benefits is not always easy. That is why it is so important to partner with a Wyoming disability attorney.
Are You Eligible for SSDI?
SSDI is part of a "safety net" of benefits offered through Social Security. A payroll tax funds Social Security, but you must have worked long enough to have paid a certain amount of this tax to get SSDI. You also must have a disability that is severe enough to:
- Keep you from doing any type of gainful work
- Last at least a year or result in death
Some conditions automatically qualify. Others are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
How Do You Apply for SSDI?
You apply for SSDI through the Social Security Administration (SSA). You can apply by phone, online, or in person at a local office. You may need to submit:
- Personal information, such as marital status and birth dates of minor children
- Tax forms
- Work history
- A disability report, detailing your condition
- Details about any Workers' Compensation claims you have filed
But a state agency decides whether you get benefits. In Wyoming, that agency is Social Security Disability Determination Services.
Wyoming lawyers know the nuances of how approvals work in your state. They can assess your case and make sure all of your paperwork is thoroughly prepared. If you happen to be turned down for benefits, you may be able to file an file an appeal. Your attorney can help with that, too.
