Social Security Disability Benefits for Illness Archives


You may have been injured in an accident and unable to work, or you may have a disease or other medical condition--but to win Social Security Disability benefits you must prove to the Social Security Administration that you are unable to engage in "substantial activity," for at least twelve consecutive months.


Si está totalmente incapacitado por una condición médica grave - por una cirugía como la fusión espinal o otra cirugía, reemplazo de hombro o rodilla, diabetes o cáncer, o cualquier otra condición incapacitante grave - una de las partes más importantes de su caso es su "EOD," O su "established onset date" - la fecha que elige Seguro Social come el día que empezó su incapacidad.

Seguro Social de Incapacidad: Mirando hacia el 2017

Cada año, la Administración del Seguro Social hace cambios a los Beneficios de Incapacidad del Seguro Social (SSDI) y a las reglas que gobiernan cómo puede obtener esos beneficios. Por ejemplo, el umbral en 2017 fue aumentado para la actividad sustancial ganancia a $1,170.00 por mes. Con el fin de cobrar los beneficios de Seguro Social por Incapacidad (SSDI), no puede ser empleado y ganar más que el umbral de $1,170.00. El beneficio para usted como trabajador lesionado y discapacitado es que usted puede trabajar y seguir siendo elegible para beneficios.

Social Security Disability: Looking ahead to 2017

Every year the Social Security Administration makes changes to Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI) and to the rules that govern how you can get those benefits. For instance, the threshold in 2017 was raised for Substantial Gainful Activity to $1,170.00 per month. In order to collect Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI), you cannot be employed and earning more than the $1,170.00 threshold. The benefit to you as an injured and disabled worker is that you can work and still be eligible for benefits.


We represent a client who became totally disabled because of a mental, or cognitive, disorder. She asked us to handle her case for Social Security Disability benefits, because she feared that the Social Security Administration would reject her claim because she suffered only from the cognitive, or mental, disorder.
