SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFIT CHANGES

If you are on Social Security Disability benefits or are about to file for Social Security Disability benefits because you are disabled, and too disabled for all but a minimum of gainful employment, you need to know that the Social Security Administration will be making changes for the coming year.

CÓMO DETERMINAR SU FECHA DE INCAPACIDAD EN SU CASO DE SEGURO SOCIAL

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.

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SSD DATE OF DISABILITY

If you are totally disabled for a serious medical condition--from spinal fusion or other surgery, to shoulder or knee replacement, to diabetes or cancer, or any other serious disabling condition--one of the most significant parts of your case is your EOD, or established onset date.

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.

Life after Disability: Can I return to school?

Disability: It was the only way to get the time you needed to adequately heal. You're grateful for the help, but now that you are feeling better, you wonder what is next. You've heard that going back to work can affect your benefits--and you're not sure you are even healthy enough to return more than part-time. Your injury left you unable to do your old job, and you need more training for a new one. But will Social Security end your benefits if you go back to school?

TEACHING AT LINCOLN HOSPITAL

IMG_0191.JPG El martes, día 2 de febrero me invitaron de nuevo para enseñar una clase en a Compensación de Trabajadores, Demandas de Lesiones Personales, y las leyes de Discapacidad del Seguro Social en el auditorio principal del Hospital Lincoln. Es un privilegio apoderar a los hombres y mujeres que trabajan con el conocimiento de cómo proteger sus beneficios si se lesionan la espalda, el cuello, los hombros, las rodillas, o si se desarrolla el síndrome del túnel carpiano mientras se trabaja en la construcción, o en un andamio o escalera, o en un ascensor accidente, o cuando el techo se derrumba, o en un accidente de ascensor, o en cuidando los ancianos y discapacitados. Con Elizabeth Ríos, mi Asistente Legal Principal, y el recipiente de un Certificado en Liderazgo Latino de Trabajo de la Universidad de Cornell, yo era capaz de enseñar a los trabajadores hispanohablantes que estaban presiente. A finales de este mes estaré enseñando en el Hospital Presbiteriano de Alto Manhattan, y por un grupo de trabajadores de la construcción en Queens: no puedo estar más emocionado y agradecido de poder compartir mis conocimientos con los hombres y mujeres trabajadores de la ciudad de Nueva York.

TEACHING AT LINCOLN HOSPITAL

IMG_0191.JPG  On Tuesday, February 2nd, I was again invited to teach Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury, and Social Security Disability laws in the main auditorium at Lincoln Hospital. It's a privilege to empower working men and women with knowledge how to protect their benefits if they injure their back or neck, or shoulders or knees, or develop carpal tunnel syndrome, while working in construction or on a scaffold or ladder, or in an elevator accident, or when a roof collapses, or in a construction hole, or in caring for the elderly and disabled. With Elizabeth Rios, my Chief Paralegal and recipient of a Certificate in Latino Labor Leadership from Cornell University, I was able to teach the Spanish-speaking workers in attendance. Later this month I will be teaching at Presbyterian Hospital in upper Manhattan, and for a group of construction workers in Queens: I cannot be more excited and gratified to be sharing my knowledge with the working men and women of New York City.
