Social Security Disability Attorney in Amarillo, TX
Have you been denied a Social Security Disability claim?
Disability is something that most people don't like to think about, but the chances of becoming disabled are probably greater than you realize. In fact, studies show that 1 our of 4 young workers will become disabled at some point during their lifetime.
It is a fact that while most people spend time working to succeed in their jobs and careers, few think about ensuring that they have a safety net to fall back on should the unthinkable happen. This is where Social Security comes in. In many cases, Social Security will pay cash benefits to people who are disabled for a year or more. Benefits continue until a person is able to work again on a regular basis, and a number of work incentives are available to ease the transition back to work.
What establishes a person as being disabled?
Establishing yourself as disabled under Social Security's regulations can be complicated.
You must have a physical or mental impairment which prevents you from doing any substantial gainful employment.
Then condition is expected to last (or has lasted) at least one year, or is expected to result in death.
Medical evidence from your physician or another source is required to show how severe your condition is and to what extent it prevents you from working.
Who can receive Social Security Disability payments?
There are several different types of Social Security Disability programs that pay disability benefits to persons under age 65. One program is based on how much money you have paid into Social Security. Another is based on your income and assets. Some people qualify for both programs. Some programs include medicare and/or medicaid benefits.
