Have you been thinking about filing for disability? The process may seem daunting, but it does not have to be. In fact, hiring an attorney can be one of the best ways to ensure that you have access to the benefits you deserve.
If you are thinking about filing, you first need to know what kinds of benefits you may be eligible to receive. These are some of the benefits you should talk to your attorney about.
You've Paid Into Social Security Disability Insurance
If you have paid a sufficient amount of taxes, you may be eligible to receive SSD (Social Security Disability) insurance benefits. If you are disabled and unable to work, this can help cover some of your lost income.
You Are Over the Age of 50
If you are over 50, you may be eligible for SSD before others. You may have an easier time meeting eligibility requirements based on your age. If you have questions about the impact of age on your benefits, consult with a professional to make sure you are getting your full benefit.
Your Eligible Spouse Died
You may be eligible to receive your spouse's SSD within a certain time frame. Each instance is different, and it is important that you speak with a lawyer to ensure you are eligible for spousal benefits.
Your Dependents Are Eligible
If you have minor children or other dependents in your home who are eligible to receive SSD, you may have an easier time getting more benefits than you would have otherwise.
You Are a Veteran
If you are a veteran, you may be eligible for a specific type of disability via the Department of Veterans Affairs. If you feel that your needs are not being met or that your rights are trampled on, a lawyer will help you determine what kind of benefits you should be receiving.
You Have a Private Disability Plan
If you have paid for a long-term disability plan, you may be eligible for additional benefits. Your private plan may have additional stipulations that you should discuss with a lawyer if you feel that your rights have been violated.
Speak with Somebody Who Understands
Disability benefits are available to help many people who are no longer able to work. If you are dealing with pain or have been injured at work, now is the best time to speak with a professional about applying for benefits. A social security disability attorney can help you complete these steps successfully.Share
