Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.You don't have to be disabled for any length of time before you apply for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) or SSI disability benefits. You are eligible for SSD or SSI benefits as soon as you stop being able to do substantial work. In most cases, Social Security defines substantial work as making $1,090 per month.
So here you can file for disability here and see if they approve you for benefits.You would argue that because of your ailments that you can no longer do substantial work(your current job).
You would have to quit your job here but you file the next day, no waiting period,But you have to be unemployed here because of your ailments and conditions.
Edward there is some risk here, you would have to quit your job but you can file immediately.If you get to the point where you can no longer work then you will have to quit and file.I know it is frustrating for you and many others.When you can no longer function here you quit and file and likely get benefits.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Again am sorry you are going through all of this.I wish you the best.Thanks again.
Edward thanks again let me know if you have more follow up.It is never a problem.
