Can I Qualify For SSDI If I Own A Home

Homes and assets that you own or money that you have in the bank does not affect your eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance.

Will my eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) be affected by the fact that I own a home or have savings in the bank?

No. Homes and assets that you own or money that you have in the bank does not affect your eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance.

SSDI is based on FICA (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) contributions that workers make through their employers, or by self-employed individuals.

The 2 main requirements for SSDI are first, have you earned enough work credits (based on your age) and second, do you meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disabled.

The size of your bank account and the amount of equity you have in your home do not factor into the decision on your eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance.

If you have questions about your eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), contact an experienced Social Security Disability attorney and ask for a free consultation.
