If you are disabled according to Social Security Disability (SSDI) regulations, and if you have worked long enough to have contributed adequately to the Social Security system, then you are entited to SSDI, and after being on SSDI for two years, you are entitled to Medicare.
Getting qualified for SSDI can be a tough process, but SSDI does have a long list of conditions or illnesses considered to be so apparently disabling, that you don’t have to go through a lengthy process to prove you can’t work. If you have one of these conditions or illnesses, the folks at SSDI know you can’t work and they fast-track your approval.
SSDI has been hard at work lately expanding the list of fast-track disabilities. Just recently, they added thirty-five new conditions, bringing the total fast-track list to two hundred. The most recognizable names from the new additions are Adult Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Adult Onset Huntington Disease.
Check out the full list here to see if you may be able to fast track your SSDI application.
