We Fight for What's Right, Not What's Easy
Disability, according to the Social Security Administration, is the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity due to any physical or mental impairment(s) which are medically determinable and expected to last for a period of not less than 12 months. In order to collect Social Security Disability benefits a person must:
- Be incapable of engaging in substantially gainful employment
- Have earned wages and paid into the Social Security system in at least 20 of the last 40 quarters
The payment amount you are eligible for is based on your income while you could work. You may receive a yearly cost of living adjustment depending upon how long you collect Social Security Disability benefits. Eligibility for the benefits ceases if your condition improves and you are able to return to substantial gainful activity. However, if you return to work in spite of a disabling condition, you should notify the Social Security Administration as it may be possible to continue receiving benefits.
You can receive Social Security disability benefits until you turn 65. At that time, your disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits, but the amount stays the same. After 65 you cannot draw additional benefits due to disability.
Eligibility and Similar Programs
Other programs exist that are similar to social security, like Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is financed through the general tax revenues and not through Social Security trust funds. SSI disability benefits are paid to:
- People who have a disability
- People who have limited income and financial resources
If your Social Security benefit amount is low, you may be able to apply for SSI as well.
You May Be Entitled to Benefits
If you can’t work due to a disability, you may be entitled to benefits. Contact the professional at Montlick Law to find out what your options are. No matter where you are, we are just a phone call or message away.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program that workers, employers, and the self-employed pay for with their Social Security Taxes. These benefits are based on your work history and the amount of your benefits is based on earnings over your lifetime. The amount of your SSDI benefit is determined by the Social Security Administration and is determined by:
- Your covered earnings
- Your age
- The date you became disabled
If you become eligible for SSDI, Social Security will automatically enroll you in Medicare after you get Social Security disability benefits for 2 years, beginning the month you are entitled to receive disability benefits as opposed to when you receive your first check.
