Are you unable to work as the result of a disability? Is this making it difficult for you to make ends meet? Is it having a negative impact on your family? If you find yourself in this position, you should learn more about Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
This program is operated by the Social Security Administration, providing people with disabilities the money they need to get by when they are unable to work as a means of supporting themselves.
Unfortunately, just because you have a disability doesn’t mean you qualify to receive benefits. Instead, you need to have paid enough in Social Security taxes and have worked a minimum number of years in order to qualify.
Simply put, the more you have worked and the more you have earned, the more money you can collect if you are eligible to receive benefits as a disabled individual.
Due to the fact that your earnings record can be complex (and sometimes inaccurate) and because you could be denied benefits, it’s important to understand the ins and outs of the system.
Furthermore, there could come a time when you are denied benefits and need to file an appeal with the appropriate party. In this case, you need to know how to present your case.
At our law firm, we know that many people rely on Social Security Disability Insurance benefits in order to provide for themselves and their family. For this reason, we take great pride in helping people apply for benefits and file an appeal if the time comes.
