8 SSDI Benefits Beyond Monthly Income

Approval for Social Security Disability Insurance unlocks access to money-saving, life-enhancing benefits beyond regular monthly income.

Medicare Coverage

You’re eligible for this medical, hospital and prescription coverage 24 months after your SSDI benefits begin.

COBRA Extension

The length of your COBRA benefits could be extended an additional 11 months.

LTD Security

If you have private long-term disability (LTD) insurance, it probably requires you to apply for SSDI. Doing this can protect LTD benefits.

Retirement Benefits

Approval for SSDI triggers a Social Security earnings record freeze that can result in a higher retirement income.

Dependent Benefits

SSDI approval can activate benefits for your children under the age of 18, adding up to 50% more income to your monthly payments.

Cost-of-Living Adjustment

The SSA evaluates cost of living allowances annually, which could increase your monthly payment.

Tax Relief

You may not have to pay income taxes on a portion of the SSDI benefit payments you get each month.

Return to Work

There are incentives if you return to work.
