Helping You Navigate Disability
Social Security Disability was created to help those Americans who find themselves disabled. According to the Social Security Administration, studies show that a person over 20 has a 1 in 4 chance of becoming disabled before reaching retirement age. These benefits serve as a way for these disabled Americans, who have a long term disability, to have some semblance of an income to help pay the bills. Not everyone meets the requirements for Social Security Disability benefits however and understanding your rights and proving your case can be overwhelming. For example, as a general rule, to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must meet two criteria which include:
1. A “recent work” test based on your age at the time of the injury
2. A “duration of work” test to show the amount of time you worked under Social Security.
This is just the beginning. Understanding the other rules and criteria can be confusing for those unfamiliar with them. For this reason, hiring an attorney to assist you is key to ensuring a positive outcome.
