Applying for Disability in Maryland

There are two major programs available to Maryland residents applying for disability. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are both federal programs run by the Social Security Administration (SSA) designed to help you.

If a Maryland resident is managing a disabling condition that prevents them from working, they may qualify for disability benefits.

When to File for Disability in Maryland

Applying as soon as you become disabled is suggested.

There is a five-month delay for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. The SSDI waiting period starts the first whole month following the date your disability began. Benefit payments will not start before the sixth month of disability.

If your disability results from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and is approved for SSDI benefits, there is no waiting period.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits are available for the first month following the date you filed your claim. If later, the date you will become eligible for SSI.

How to File for Disability in Maryland

  1. Online: ssa.gov.
  2. Phone: Llame al SSA al (800) 772-1213.
  3. In-person: Apply at a local Social Security field office.

Applicants may also be represented by a disability advocate or lawyer who will increase the chances for approval. There are no fees for using representation throughout the application process.

Maryland State Supplements

The Social Security Administration manages the maximum benefits a recipient can receive from Supplemental Security Income. Since 2015, $733 has been the maximum allotted amount per month for non-married recipients. A recipient may qualify for additional state supplements with their SSI benefits. Received amounts depend on the individual’s current living status. To discover how much you could receive based on your living situation, contact Maryland’s Department of Disabilities.
