DO YOU QUALIFY FOR SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS?
You need to apply for disability benefits if you cannot work. Disability benefits replace your income and Cannon Disability Law can help. Under Social Security rules, if you are unable to work a full-time job because of a physical or mental impairment, then we can help you obtain your disability benefits. Most importantly, you won’t pay a Social Security Disability Attorney fee until we win your disability case.
The Social Security Administration will consider you disabled if:
- You cannot do work that you did before;
- You cannot adjust to other work because of your disability; and
- Your disability is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.
- Additionally, in order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, workers over the age of 30 must have acquired worker at least 20 work credits within the ten year period just prior to the occurrence of the disability. The Social Security Administration often calls this rule the “20/40 rule.”
Supplemental Security Income benefits are different from Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits are “SSI” benefits and SSI acts as a supplement to a low monthly SSD benefit. SSI is also for people who have not worked enough to be covered under the quarters of coverage rule to obtain SSD benefits or who don’t work because they are children. In order to be eligible for SSI benefits, you must meet the disability requirements and the income and asset requirements set by the SSA. Typically, you will need an attorney to help you understand how to prove that you should receive disability benefits.
