Don’t Let The SSA Bully You Out Of Your Benefits

Physical and mental disabilities can present many challenges for a person and their family, especially if that person recently suffered an illness or injury that has made them disabled and they used to be the primary wage-earner. Being unable to work because of a work-related injury, medical condition or another cause takes a physical, financial and emotional toll on both the injured person and their family.

Social Security Disability Programs

The Social Security Administration (SSA) runs two programs for individuals who are identified as legally disabled or blind. Only persons who are determined to have a disability and meet specific medical standards may qualify for benefits under these programs.

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) — Individuals who are disabled or blind and insured under the Social Security tax that is paid on their earnings or the earnings of a spouse or parent are given benefits through the SSDI program, or Title II.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) For individuals who are disabled or blind (including children under the age of 18) and have limited income and resources, payments may be received through SSI or Title XVI.

Obtaining Social Security Disability benefits can be complicated. After filing a claim, the state will decide whether a claimant's medical condition adheres to the definition of a disability under Social Security law. A person's age, daily activity level, past work experience, education and medical information will be evaluated. In examining this information, a person's physicians, hospitals, employers, schools and other individuals may be contacted so that functional information and medical records can be accessed.
