Social Security Disability Benefits
There are around 56 million people in the United States with at least one disabling condition. According to the CDC, approximately 22 percent of adults in the United States have some form of disability. Some individuals who are disabled may have minor conditions, while there are those who have severe medical problems that can interfere with their everyday lives.
The social security administration (SSA) forms an important social safety net for those who are unable to earn a living due to their disability. There are two different types of benefit programs offered by the SSA, each provide a monthly income for the disabled.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – this is a means-based program available to the disabled as well as the elderly.
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – this is available to those who have earned coverage by working and paying into the social security system.
SSI and SSDI are both meant to ensure that a disabled worker has the money they need to provide for themselves and stay out of poverty, with that being said, the social security administration has made the application process very difficult. The reason they have made the process difficult and lengthy is to prevent fraud and make sure only those who are truly disables receive the benefits provided.
This stringent application process has initially denied millions who qualify, since the application process is so difficult, the Attorney Injury Group advises you to consult an experienced social security disability attorney today.
