Understanding Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI):

Under the federal Social Security Disability Act, "disability" means the "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physician or mental impairment which can be expected to last  for a continuous period of not less than 12 months or result in death."

Social Security Disability (SSD)
Social Security Disability benefits or SSD are paid to individuals who have worked in the recent years. Usually you have to work 5 out of the last 10 years. For individuals under 31 years old, the requirements are a little different since they have not been in the work force as long. More...

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income benefits or SSI are paid to individuals whom are lower level income and disabled whether or not the individual has worked in the past. SSI child's disability benefits are paid to children who are under 18 years old, are disabled and the parents or guardian are of lower level income. More...

You should file as soon as it is determined that you will not be able to work during the next 12 months or your condition is expected to lead to death. However Social Security is not a short term disability. Therefore if you have an accident where you cannot work for several days or even a few months, you will not be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.

 

What You Should Know About Filing a Disability Claim:

How much Social Security Disability or SSi benefits an individual will get depends on how much that individual worked in the past and earned during that time or in the case of SSi it depends on the individual's claim circumstances . For disabled widow's, it depends on how much the spouse earned and for a disabled child, it depends on how much the parent earned.

Stages of the Social Security Disability Claims Process:

Do not be surprised if you are denied at the initial stage (good reason why it is wise to have an attorney). Only about 40% of the claims are approved at that stage. The next stage, Reconsideration, about 20% of the individuals win at that stage. The last
stage, the Hearing stage is where the individual actually has a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. The hearing is informal with only the judge, his secretary and often times the judge will have a vocational expert present to testify as to what jobs the individual can perform.

Having an attorney makes good sense:

No fee is collected if you're social security disability claim is not won, and fees are only collected on the back end. Lawyers receive 25% of the back benefits up to a certain amount which has been set by law.

  1. Statistically claimants that are represented by an attorney are much more likely to win their claim.
  2. An experienced attorney knows what proof social security and ssi disability system requires
