Information on Social Security Disability Benefits in Connecticut

According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), the chances that you will become disabled are greater than you probably realize. The SSA says that a 20-year-old worker has a 1-in-4 chance of becoming disabled before he or she reaches full retirement age – a sobering statistic.

Social Security Disability income is for individuals who are unable to work because they have a medical condition that is either expected to last at least one year or result in death. Certain family members of disabled workers may also receive money from Social Security providing they meet certain requirements.

When should I apply for Social Security Disability benefits?

You should apply for disability benefits as soon as you become disabled, namely because the application process can take three to five months on average. The best way to expedite the process is to ensure that you provide a complete application.

You will need to provide a number of important pieces of information for your SSD application, such as:

  • Your Social Security number
  • Your birth certificate
  • Name, address, and phone numbers of all treating physicians, hospitals etc.
  • Names and dosages of all medications that you are taking
  • Medical records
  • Laboratory and test results
  • Most recent W-2 form, or if you are self-employed, last year's federal tax return

Once the Social Security Administration receives your application, the agency will see if you meet the basic requirements for disability benefits, and they will check to see if you have worked enough years to qualify.

The doctors and disability specialists at the agency will ask your doctors for information about your condition, and they will use the medical evidence provided by your doctors and hospitals to make a determination. If your medical condition is on the Listing of Impairments, or if it is not on this list but its severity meets or equals that of a listed impairment, the agency may decide that you are disabled.
