Understanding Social Security Disability Benefits
Answers from Our Reno Social Security Disability Attorney
Social security disability benefits are available to any United States citizen who suffers from a serious, long-term disability. In order to qualify for these special benefits, a disabled individual must display an inability to perform work functions that were once considered to be routine. Additionally, the individual must demonstrate the inability to adapt to another work position due to their disability. Finally, the disability must be expected to last a minimum of 12 months, or be a condition that will inevitably result in death.
Determining the level of social security disability benefits to be paid is first dependent on eligibility and then on the average lifetime earnings of the disabled person covered by social security. Benefits may be paid to you or your family in the event of your death, and will vary according to the beneficiaries' age or relationship to you.
Social security disability benefits are critical for many individuals and families who need financial assistance in the face of an unforeseen, prolonged injury, especially when the victim is responsible for supporting the family financially. If you are in need of applying for these benefits—and believe that you qualify for them—our professionals are ready to assist you.
