Ultimately, to win your SSDI case in Illinois, you’ll need to prove that you can’t work (in any job) for at least a year due to illness or injury. Although this may sound straightforward, it rarely is. The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses complicated guidelines and rules to evaluate disability claims, and a large majority of Illinois Social Security applicants are denied.
