Social Security Disability Benefits

Posted by on Sep 16, 2013 in Personal Injury, Social Security | 0 comments

In order to apply for Social Security Disability benefits one must meet certain criteria. Not only must one be disabled, they must also have a sufficient amount of “work credits” with Social Security. Depending on one’s age and the year they became disabled depends on how many credits they will need. If the application is approved, typically the benefits include monthly cash payments. The amount of these cash payments is determined by looking at the applicant’s personal earnings record. Payments usually range from $700 to $1,400 a month.

The benefits may be paid to other members of the disabled person’s family as well. For example, benefits may be paid to their spouse, divorced spouse, children, disabled child and/or adult child disabled before age 22.

Unfortunately, the disabilities people experience are often a result of someone else’s actions. As Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® puts it, “people act in reprehensible and reckless ways every day, causing innocent people to be the victims of serious injuries caused by a wide variety of accidents and incidents, ranging from car and truck accidents to animal attacks to dangerous products.” No matter the cause, the injuries are often a result of others. It is important to not only look at the possible social security disability benefits available, but also the legal actions offered for personal injury.

It is important to receive justice for the suffering and life-changing injuries one suffers. People suffer a variety of injuries that cause them to be disabled. That person may not limited in some everyday activities, or may not be able to work at all anymore. Whatever the case, it is necessary to know all the opportunities for benefits and damages available in the case of something like this.
