About Social Security
The Social Security Administration has strict requirements for eligibility. In short, Social Security Disability benefits are paid to people with a physical or mental disability, or a combination of both, that is severe enough to keep them from working for at least 12 months.
The government’s disability benefits come mainly from two sources: The Social Security Disability Insurance program and the Supplemental Security Income program. Sometimes, a disabled worker also can collect from worker’s compensation insurance. In the event that an injured worker receives workers’ compensation benefits, the amount Social Security pays may be reduced. It’s important to note that Social Security does not pay short-term or partial disability benefits.
Even though the federal government does not require applicants to have legal representation, the Social Security Administration says that claimants who have attorneys hold a better chance of a successful result. The Disability Associates legal team has more than 25 years of experience handling disability cases. We can help you from the beginning of the process to the end. Additionally, if you’ve tried on your own, and your application has been denied, we can file your appeal.
