Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability
We understand that accidents and illness can create a significant financial hardship when you are unable to work. However you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. Many disability applications are denied at the initial level due to errors in the application. While many applications initially pass, they are eventually denied due to missing medical documentation. If your initial application and request for reconsideration has been denied it may be time to seek legal counsel.
Our Attorney’s will help you:
- Understand the notices from the Social Security Administration
- Order and compile medical records
- Review your medical records to determine whether it is likely that you will be ruled disabled based on the definitions used by the Social Security Administration.
- Prepare you for questioning at a disability hearing
Are you eligible for Social Security Disability?
To qualify for Social Security disability, you must have a permanent conditions that prevents you from working. This condition must have lasted or be expected to last at least 12 months. To be approved for disability, your medical impairment must be supported by documentation from your treating doctors and hospitals. Additionally, you must not earn or be able to earn more than $1000 per month due to your conditions.
Furthermore the Administration will consider your age, education, and past relevant work when deciding whether you will be found disabled. The test is not whether or not you are able to go back to your old job or whether you are unable to find a new job. But rather disability is determined by considering your age, education, and past relevant work experience.
What is the difference between Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits & Social Security Income?
(SSDIB) – This is known as Title II Social Security Disability Benefits. This program benefits people who have a severe medical problem which will prevent them from working for one year or more. Based on their earnings record and work history. Additionally, it provides benefits for their children.
(SSI) – This is known as Title XVI Supplemental Security Income. This program provides benefits for people who have severe medical problems which will keep them from working for one year or more. These individuals do not have a sufficient work history and/or who have not paid enough quarters into Social Security. Benefits are also based upon assets and household income.
How does Workers’ Compensation or VA Disability qualify me for Social Security disability?
The disability findings of Workers compensation and VA do not necessarily qualify you for disability benefits. The Veteran’s Administrations and state worker’s compensation programs define disability in different ways. The Social Security Administration will make its own determination of whether you are disabled based on its rules and regulations.
Having someone that is familiar with the disability application process can help ease the frustration of dealing with the Social Security Administration. If you have been denied disability benefits. Let your Georgia Buddy assist you in filing your appeals and/or your request for hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. Call us for a FREE Consultation at 1-844-GA-Buddy.
