Do You Have a Claim?
Qualifying for Social Security Disability
There are specific criteria put forth by the Social Security Administration (SSA) which an individual must meet in order to be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. At Disability Actions Advocates we focus on just one thing – Social Security disability claims. When unfortunate circumstances burden you with a disability, short or long term, you deserve the professional expertise of an attorney and the DAA team who knows every aspect of disability law and how to get results.
Federal Programs to Assist Disabled
Social Security Disability
This is a program funded by the Social Security tax fund. When you are disabled and have worked and gained sufficient work credits showing on your job history summary, you qualify. This means an individual must have paid Social Security taxes on his or her wages long enough to qualify for benefits. An individual with a fairly continuous job history, who has worked a minimum of five of the previous 10 years before the onset of disability is in a good position to win an application for benefits.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income, on the other hand, is funded through general tax revenues and not through Social Security taxes. For this reason, there are no work requirements to qualify for supplemental security income. This benefit was created to assist individuals 65years and older, or who are legally blind or disabled with a low total of family assets.
Determining whether you qualify and knowing whether you have a claim is all we do! Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be a stressful experience.
