Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability is a federal program that pays income benefits if you’re disabled and unable to earn income on your own. Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Disability is something most people do not like to think about, but the chances that you will become disabled probably are greater than you realize. Studies show that a 20-year-old worker has a 3 in 10 chance of becoming disabled before reaching full retirement age.

Disability Claims

You have worked hard for years. You have paid your taxes. Now, you are disabled and cannot work. Are you under the age of 65? If so, you may qualify to receive Social Security Disability Benefits. The system was designed for people in just your situation. Social Security Disability benefits are an option if you have an injury or illness severe enough to have kept you from working at all for at least a year, or that is expected to keep you from working for at least a year. If your request for benefits is approved, you will receive monthly payments. The amount of such payments varies, depending on your age and your earnings history.

Statistically, most applicants are denied in the initial stages. However, an initial denial is not the end of the road. In many cases, benefits are denied because the applicant had not provided sufficient evidence of his or her condition. You can appeal the denial decision, request a hearing, and bring additional evidence that may change the outcome of your petition.


Of course, filing the strongest application possible from the very beginning is the most efficient way to pursue the benefits. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Mitchell S. Shea, P.A. can help.
