Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income are essential benefits for many disabled Americans. These benefits can make the difference between making ends meet and facing bankruptcy. Despite how crucial these benefits are to some people, there is not a guarantee that those in need of these benefits will actually receive them.
The application process for these benefits is notoriously difficult, but not impossible to overcome. Even when a doctor recognizes you are disabled, the Social Security Administration may not grant you the benefits you are applying for. Maury Disability Law has over 30 years of experience in helping clients prove they meet the government’s definition of being disabled.
Social Security Disability requirements include:
When you begin receiving disability benefits, you will continue to get them until you are able to work again on a regular basis. However, once you become able to work again, you may continue receiving some benefits, called “work incentives.”
If you meet all of the Social Security Disability requirements and are still receiving benefits when you attain full retirement age, then the SSA will convert your benefits into retirement benefits. However, the amount of your benefits will remain the same.
You must have a medical condition that meets the definition of a disability by the Social Security Administration (SSA). However, under Social Security, the definition of that term is different than many other programs and insurance companies.
The Social Security Administration considers you disabled if the following are true:
You must be totally disabled to meet Social Security Disability requirements. Partial disability or short-term disabilities will not qualify for benefits. The SSA assumes that families with working individuals have other means to provide support if someone becomes disabled on a short-term basis. Those resources may include workers’ compensation, short- and long-term disability insurance through an employer, savings accounts, and investments that you can use.
