Get Your Social Security Disability Coverage When You Need It
No one ever plans for a disability to completely and unexpectedly change their life, but sometimes severe injuries or sudden illnesses can lead to our inability to work. That is why programs such as Social Security Disability (SSD) exist. They are meant to provide benefits to those who have become disabled and who no longer can work to provide for themselves and their family due to the disability. The benefits can also extend to members of their families depending on the circumstances.
Because every individual’s SSD case is unique to their situation, and the filing process is intimidating, it is best to consult a knowledgeable attorney at Paulus Law Firm, LLC, to determine your eligibility and ensure that you receive coverage when you need it most. Reach out to us at 573-677-4936; we have the right experience to guide and advise you should any issues arise.
How Do I Qualify?
SSD is only available to those who have worked and paid Social Security taxes prior to their disability. The actual amount you receive is based on your recorded earnings, or what your salary used to be. Listed below are just a few more of the criteria you must meet to qualify for coverage:
- You meet the work credit history minimum.
- You have an eligible medical condition.
- Your disability is expected to last for at least a year.
If you are unsure whether you meet the eligibility guidelines, speak with an attorney who can explain the process in detail and walk you through the application steps.
