You don’t need to be on your death bed to be receiving disabled benefits, but for SSI and SSDI claims you do need to have a disability severe enough to show that you will, or were, unable to work for a year or longer. If you have suffered a disability and have since returned to work, it is still possible to file for social security disability benefits so long as you can show that you did not work for a year because of your disability.
The chances are that your initial SSI SSDI claim will be turned down by the SSA. When this happens you have 60 days to file an appeal. Depending on the backlog of cases pending it could take some time before your case is heard. A disability attorney can help make sure that all the medical and vocational evidence you need is collected and documented correctly. Your disability lawyer will also guide you through the process so you are prepared for your hearing and will be there to represent you. You won’t be charged any legal fees unless you win.
Dalton, Georgia Disability Benefits
If you have been working in the carpet industry and you are disabled through a work accident you may be entitled to workers compensation. This does not mean you can’t still apply for social security disability benefits. Disability insurance benefits (SSDI) do not take into account any income you are receiving or any assets you have, but are based on the contributions you have made to FICA in your working life. An SSI (supplemental security income) on the other hand is subject to your income and assets. You do not have to have worked at all to receive SSI, but you will still need to prove your disability.
According to the 2002 census 16.0% of Dalton residents live below the poverty line. Even for those who have been making a good living finding yourself unable to meet day to day living costs and dealing with mounting medical bills that are often associated with any disability can be soul destroying. Most people simply do not have the assets to sustain their living costs for more than a few months. Using a disability lawyer can make all the difference in getting your disabled benefits processed and approved as quickly as possible.
