Becoming permanently disabled and unable to work for a living is something most people think will never happen to them. However, according to the U.S. Social Security Administration. 3 out of 10 Americans who work for 20 years or more will become permanently disabled before reaching retirement age.
SSD pays benefits to the disabled worker and in some cases a workerâ€™s relatives if the disabled worker has worked long enough and paid enough Social Security taxes. SSI is designed to help qualified aged, blind, and disabled workers who have little or no income by providing cash to provide for food, clothing, shelter, and other basic needs.
Filing Your Claim
It is important to note that not all disabilities qualify the injured worker for Social Security Disability (SSD) Insurance or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The federal benefits are designed to assist disabled American workers who meet certain requirements under the nationâ€™s Social Security laws. Only those disabilities that are diagnosed to keep a worker off the job for at least one year, or result in death, will be eligible for benefits. Social Security does not compensate people who are suffering from partial or temporary disabilities.
As is often the case, the Social Security Administration rejects a disability claim because they believe the claimant is not disabled and is able to work for a living. By allowing our attorneys to advise you and help you file a valid claim for benefits, you may increase your chances of being approved for benefits.
