Social Security Disability

There are two types of disability benefit programs administered by the Social Security Administration. These programs are:

Social Security Disability – Better known as Disabled Worker’s Benefits. These benefits require that the disabled person has worked for a certain period of time prior to application.

Supplemental Security Income – “SSI” provides for individuals whom are disabled with limited income and financial resources.

To receive either Disabled Worker’s Benefits or SSI, the applicant must meet the following criteria:


The applicant must have a disability which lasts or is expected to last at least one year or is expected to result in death, and


The applicant’s disability must prevent him or her from doing all previous work and prevent the applicant from adjusting to other types of work.

Social Security Benefits may be offset by other sources of disability benefits received such as workers’ compensation benefits.
The applicant may also qualify for SSI benefits if he or she is blind or is 65 years old or older and the applicant must have limited income and financial resources.

The Social Security Administration looks at different factors and evidence to determine if the applicant qualifies for Disabled Worker’s Benefits and SSI Benefits. Evidence considered by the Social Security Administration may include medical records, doctor reports, employer and co-worker statements and vocational experts. The applicant may be sent for an evaluation by a Social Security Administration doctor.

Obtaining Social Security Benefits can be a long and complicated process. Let Russell put his legal background to work for you by evaluating your claim.
