Understanding Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability (SSD) provides monthly benefits to replace lost income when someone is unable to work for a long period of time due to injury or illness. It is a “safety net” created with money YOU paid into the system while you were working through payroll deductions. The amount of money you receive in benefits is based on your lifetime earnings before you became disabled.

Who is eligible?

Apply for SSD if: You expect to be out of work for at least 12 months AND you have a disabling condition that prevents you from working eight hours a day, five days a week.

The Social Security Administration uses five criteria to determine eligibility. You must prove that you are disabled; meaning that you are physically and/or mentally unable to work at your regular job, or any job. There are a wide range of listed physical and mental impairments accepted by the Social Security Administration, including migraines, back injuries, cancer, depression and dozens of other conditions. Our attorneys have experience with all types of claims.

You may be entitled to special benefits in
your Social Security Disability claim if:

  • You are over age 50.
  • You have dependent children under age 18.
  • You need an expedited hearing for dire financial or medical reasons.
