Before you can even apply for SSD, it must be determined whether or not you qualify. Our firm can review your situation to determine if you fit the criteria and sit down with you to discuss your options. When we have gathered all of the information that can support our claim that you are disabled according to the SSA guidelines, we can submit it as soon as possible. The process can take some time, and your claim may even be initially denied. However, having an experienced Schuylkill Social Security Disability lawyer on your side from the very beginning of the case can help things move forward more efficiently.
The criteria for SSD benefits include:
It is important to note that SSD benefits are not available for individuals who have a partial disability or a short-term disability. Only individuals who will be affected by a total for a year or more are eligible. SSD benefits are not designed to provide for you 100 percent. The program relies on the assumption that families have multiple working members and access to other support resources during the time of disability, since it is designed to help you until you can work again.
If you are receiving SSD benefits and reach the age at which you can become fully retired (which depends on when you were born), your disability benefits are automatically converted into retirement benefits of the same amount.
