Social Security Disability (SSD) Law:
Contrary to popular belief, Social Security Disability benefit payments do not use government money to help recipients. In fact, if you have ever received a paycheck in the USA, you have probably made a contribution toward your Social Security Disability Benefits.
Each US citizen’s paycheck has a small portion removed and set aside for Social Security, a program that originated during the Great Depression as a way to assist the elderly, disabled, or unemployed. This money insures Americans experiencing difficult financial situations; most of the population is covered by some form of Social Security. Disabled Americans receive 17% of Social Security benefits. If you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, contact The Piemonte Law Firm to learn how you can receive your entitled payment.
Disability can significantly lower your income-earning potential. If you or a loved one suffers, or can be expected to suffer, from a long-term condition that impairs your working capability for 12 months or longer, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. You can receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) through the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Do I Qualify for Social Security Disability?
To qualify for disability, you must fit the Social Security Administration’s definition of “Disabled,” which includes the following categories: You must be unable to perform your former job, you must be unable to adjust to a different type of work, and your condition must have lasted for at least 12 months or be potentially terminal.
Two types of aid are offered. The first is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which provides benefits if you worked for a significant amount of time while paying Social Security Taxes. The second program, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), requires that you meet certain asset limitations.
