Social Security Disability Can
Provide Relief from Financial Burdens

If you develop a medical condition which prevents you from working, you may qualify for social security disability benefits. However, the application process can be complicated and many applicants are initially denied benefits

An attorney can walk you through the process...

Understanding Disability Benefits from Social Security

A serious injury or medical condition can prevent you from working and earning the money you need to support yourself.

If you have a total disability, Social Security provides disability benefits which can take the pressure off you and your loved ones. 

Unfortunately, a large percentage of claims are denied.

So How Do You Know if You Qualify?

Social Security has very strict requirements for disability benefits and only offers these benefits to people who have a total disability, rather than a partial or short-term disability. 

To qualify, you must:

  • Have had a job which paid into Social Security
  • Have worked a minimum amount within the last 10 years
  • Meet their basic requirements for a disability

In general, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will ask five basic questions to determine if you have a disability which qualifies for benefits.

Exceptions  and Special Considerations

The SSA recognizes several special situations which require different criteria. If you are blind, have low vision, or are a veteran, your case may involve a separate process.

It is important to discuss your options fully with an attorney so you know your rights.

You may ask: How much will I actually get?

Your Benefits Are Based on Your Lifetime Average Earnings

Your disability benefits will depend on how much money you earned on average during the years you paid into Social Security. The SSA has a range of tools to help you estimate your benefits.

Other government benefits, such as workers' compensation, public disability benefits, or your pension, may affect your Social Security payments.

Our team at Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton can help you assess expected disability benefit payments.

"Small team, huge impact! They're only just now starting to expand because of their success, but they give you & your case the utmost attention and are relentless in getting you the best results. There were times I felt they "did enough", but they continued to fight and then actually helped double the outcome when I didn't think it was possible. I couldn't recommend them any more." Jared A.
