The claim process is not easy:
Social Security is funded by FICA taxes, which is money available to the disabled. But, the process of getting it is not easy. Many claimants find that working alongside a knowledgeable attorney to be helpful in winning their claim.
Although the Social Security Act was passed by Congress during the term of President Roosevelt, it was not until the mid-1950s that it encompassed those who have a disability. Unfortunately, the claims process is not easy, as around 70 percent of all claimants are denied benefits. An attorney well versed in Social Security disability in Kansas City can be helpful to usher the claim through the complex appeals process.
Who is eligible for disability benefits?
There are two programs available. SSDI is available to those people who have worked and earned sufficient credits to claim, SSI is available to those with no savings and do not have a regular income.
For those claiming SSDI, they must have a condition that will keep them off the job for at least one year. If the conclusion is that they can return to work earlier, benefits will not be paid nor will benefits be paid for a partial disability. Eligibility is based on the years a claimant has worked and paid Social Security taxes.
The majority of claims are denied, but, if you meet the criteria, a seasoned Social Security disability attorney can help you see the decision overturned.
