Livonia Social Security Disability

Located in northwestern Wayne County, Michigan, Livonia is a large Detroit Metro suburb, with a population of nearly 97,000. The retail, warehousing and distribution, and healthcare industries make up the foundation of the local economy, though education also plays a part.

Livonia is among the communities served by the Region 5 District Office of the Social Security Administration in Chicago, IL. The Chicago office distributes Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income to nearly 408,600 individuals and is responsible for processing almost 32,000 new claims annually.

SSDI is issued to those who are unable to work due to extended or complete disability. To qualify for SSDI, you must meet the SSA’s disability requirements. You must also have enough work credits over the course of your employment, especially the last ten years prior to your SSD claim. If you don’t meet work credit requirements, you may still be eligible to receive SSI.
