If you become disabled and you cannot work to support yourself and your family any longer, the impact on your finances can be absolutely devastating. If you find yourself coping with this situation and stressed about how you are going to survive, one option you have is to speak with an experienced social security disability Arizona lawyer to find out if you can qualify for benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
The SSA has a program called social security disability insurance benefits, or SSDIB for short, which is intended solely for those who have a medical condition, an injury or an illness that prevents them from working. To qualify for SSDIB, it is necessary to have worked and paid into the social security system, since SSDIB is supported via payroll tax. The length of the required work history is going to depend upon your age at the time when you become disabled.
