Struggling with a mental condition or social disorder can impact various areas of your life, including your ability to do your job or secure employment in New York. If you are currently unable to work because of recent struggles involving a mental condition, or you are not able to get a job because of those issues, you may have a valid claim to certain types of Social Security disability benefits.
When you begin planning for retirement, be sure to consider whether to claim benefits before normal retirement age. If you retire early, at age 62, you will receive less than the full retirement benefit that you get if you wait till your normal retirement age to apply. When would that be? It depends on your date of birth. Check with Social Security Administration on the amount of benefits payable for you whether it is for early, or normal retirement. You may decide it is better to wait.
Although you faithfully pay into the Social Security system year after year, if you become too disabled to work, you will often run into the injustice of the Social Security Administration or a Social Security Disability Law Judge rejecting your claim for social security disability benefits!
