How does Social Security Disability work?
When people refer to Social Security disability, they are normally referring to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which is an income replacement program for people who have worked and contributed into the Social Security program but are now unable to work due to a physical or mental impairment. The amount awarded to the disabled claimant is based on the amount of money the claimant earned and contributed to the Social Security program in the past.
Another type of Social Security disability program is called Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This program is primarily a need-based program that pays benefits to people who otherwise are not able to earn a living because of a severe physical or mental impairment. Regardless of whether the claimant has worked in the past, eligibility is based purely on financial need and physical or mental disability. There are many rules which dictate whether the Social Security Administration will consider a person to be disabled and financially in need. Let the Attorneys at Brock & Stout help you navigate through the Social Security system and help get you approved as soon as possible.
Many people ask the question, "How do I qualify for Social Security Disability?" Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. Whether or not a person qualifies as disabled depends on a wide variety of factors. Below are the top five questions that need to be answered during the evaluation process.
