Social Security Issues New Pamphlet Explaining Social Security Disability

I try to share any resources that may help someone seeking disability benefits when I find out about them. Recently, the Social Security Administration (SSA) issued a new version of SSA Publication 05-10029, its pamphlet titled Disability Benefits. This 16 page pamphlet generally explains the Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs offered by Social Security.

It explains things like:
  • Quarters of Coverage to be insured for disability;
  • How to apply for Social Security Disability (you can also see my website for a quick link to their application page);
  • What information you need to apply for disability;
  • How Social Security decides if you are disabled under their system;
  • Family benefits;
  • When you get Medicare if you are found disabled; and
  • How working impacts a disability claim;
Though it does not have much detail, SSA's Disability Benefits is a good introduction to the Social Security Disability program. If you or someone you know wants to know more about applying for SSD, it is definitely worth the time to read this publication.
