Miami Social Security Disability Lawyer
The prospect of suffering a serious injury or illness that prevents us from performing the work we once did is frightening. But, we must face reality if such an injury has occurred, and then rely on our nation’s safety net that we all pay into throughout our careers. There are thousands of Americans who depend on Social Security disability. If you are suffering from a medical condition that prevents you from working for at least one year, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. In order to be eligible, your injury or illness must not be considered short-term (less than 12 months). Contact our successful Miami Social Security Disability lawyers for more information.
In order to be deemed eligible for Social Security benefits, your disability must refer to one of the following:
- You are incapable of performing the work you did before;
- The Social Security Administration decides that you are unable to adjust to other work, due to your medical condition; and
- Your disability has lasted or will likely least one year or more, or will result in death.
Short-term disabilities deem you ineligible for Social Security disability. However, if your medical condition is predicted to last fewer than 12 months, you may be able to receive workers’ compensation.
Eligibility for Social Security Disability
At times, the human body can seem all too fragile. According to the Social Security Administration, 25 percent of 20-year-olds today will become disabled before they 67 years old. It is incredibly fortunate that our country has a safety net such as Social Security disability. Your eligibility depends on the amount of time you worked, and how recently you worked. Hundreds of thousands of Americans depend upon the benefits of Social Security disability. Not only are these benefits available for you, the injured worker, they may also be able to be paid to your spouse, divorced spouse, children, disabled children, and your adult disabled child under 22 years of age.
