Some Americans have really struggled with the health issues caused by long term COVID, and SSDI benefits worth $1,000s may be available.

Qualifying for SSDI with long-term COVID symptoms

In order to qualify, the COVID symptoms need to have impacted your physical and mental ability when doing your job.

This means just because you had COVID does not mean you automatically qualify.

The Social Security Administration has stated that they’ve seen around 23,000 applications for disability that mention the illness.

This is still less than 1% of annual claims, according to The Sun.


Can you work and collect Social Security Disability?

It was announced in 2021 that COVID could be deemed a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

SSDI benefits are designed for those who will be disabled for at least one year.

Many people are seeing their claims rejected.

Right now there are 8.2 million Americans with SSDI and the average check is around $1,277.
