If I had Covid-19, do I qualify for Social Security benefits?

Yes. If you are not able to return to work because of ongoing
symptoms, you may be eligible for Social Security benefits.

Would I have had to be hospitalized with Covid-19 to qualify for benefits? 

No. Even if you were not hospitalized, you may qualify for benefits.

What is the difference between Social Security Disability(SSD) and Supplemental Security Income(SSI)?
Social Security Disability(SSD) is for workers who have earned sufficient credits to qualify.  The social security administration will advise you if you have earned sufficient credits to qualify. Then you have to prove that you are permanently and totally disabled.  SSI is for people who have not earned enough credits to qualify for SSD. You have to prove that you are on the poverty level and prove that you are totally and permanently disabled to qualify for SSI.
My child is disabled.  How does he/she qualify for social security benefits?
The child can not qualify for SSD benefits since there is no work history. The child may only qualify for SSI benefits if and only if his/her parents' income is on the poverty level. 
How can I prove that I am totally and permanently disabled?
A medical doctor has to verify that a physical or mental disorder prevents you from performing your occupation or any other occupation in the work force.
Why do I need an attorney?
Everyone is denied at the initial level.  You need to hire me, a social security specialist, to represent you before an administrative law judge in order to win your case.
Do I need an attorney for my child's SSI case?
Definitely.  Children's cases are unique and difficult to win.  I have been extremely successful in winning SSI benefits for children.
If I'm turned down for benefits, should I appeal my case?
Absolutely.  You need me, an experienced attorney who specializes in social security law.  I will present the evidence in a light most favorable to you.
