SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY
Social Security Disability Attorneys In Youngstown
In America, if you’re unable to work as a result of an illness or disability, you have the right to receive benefits from the Social Security Administration. Under the program, if you’ve worked enough qualifying quarters and become disabled, you’ll get monthly payouts that can help with medical bills and other living expenses. If you have not worked enough qualifying quarters, you may still be entitle to Supplemental Security Income. In addition, recipients of Social Security Disability may also qualify for Medicaid, even if they’re under 65 years of age.
While this is a great thing for people suffering from disabilities, the process is complicated and claims are often denied. At Anzellotti, Sperling, Pazol & Small, our legal team has the experience and knowledge needed to help you get the benefits you deserve. We’ve been helping disabled workers for over four decades and will fight for your rights so you and your family’s needs are cared for.
Qualifying for Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability is a federal insurance program that’s designed to help victims of injuries or illnesses who can no longer work. However, simply becoming disabled doesn’t automatically entitle you to benefits. There are a number of other qualifying factors, one of the primary being that the worker has paid enough Social Security taxes prior to the illness or disability. Some other qualifying factors include:
- The individual must have a disability that has lasted or is expected to last at least a year.
- The individual’s disability makes them unable to perform their job.
- The illness or disability prevents the individual from transferring to a different type of job.
- An individual must have obtained enough previous work credits, which are based on wages.
The application process for Social Security Disability can be extremely complicated. In addition, your application may get denied even when you feel you qualify for benefits. If this happens, you’ll need to retain an experienced Social Security attorney to protect your rights.
