In 2007, nearly 50 million Americans received over $602 billion in Social Security benefits. These benefits had the potential to cover countless medical bills and a variety of personal expenses for Americans who had contributed to the growth of the nation. For most people, Social Security and it’s benefits are generally associated with elderly or retired individuals.
However, Social Security provides more than just retirement benefits; it also provides benefits for those who have been pained with long-term injury or disabled. Furthermore, immediate family members also have the potential to receive these Social Security Disability Benefits as well.
Social Security Disability benefits are available to many individuals who find that they are unable to work due to the limitation that their medical conditions cause them. According to the Social Security administration, this disability is defined as a lack of work ability. Individuals are considered disabled by the Social Security administration if:
- They are proven to be incapable of doing the work that they did previously
- The Social Security administration determines that an individual cannot adjust to new work due to the medical condition AND
- The disability has lasted or is projected to last for at least a year or result in death
