social security disability

The Social Security Administration has recently introduced “The Faces and Facts of Disability,” a training and information program to help instruct people in general about Social Security disability insurance and dispel misinformation. Almost 9 million injured or disabled workers receive benefits. These 9 million people comprise those receiving benefits having mental disabilities, tangible incapacitates, and physical inabilities.

Disability

The Social Security Act strictly characterizes disability eligibility. Qualification guidelines vary from those of private insurers. Social Security does not provide partial or temporary benefits. One of the requirements that Social Security has is to check whether an individual is impaired under Social Security’s Act and whether he or she can’t work because of an extreme medical condition that has been on-going or is determined to last one year or bring about death. The applicant’s condition must keep them from doing work that they have done previously, and it must keep them from performing other work.

Disability is very erratic and could happen to anybody at any age. Consistently a large number of younger people are genuinely harmed. Numerous people find out about disability however they don’t think it will befall them. One in four insured 20 year olds can be incapacitated before arriving at retirement age. Social Security can provide a means of income vital to support these individuals.

Social Security Disability installments

The normal month-to-month disability amount paid by Social Security to beneficiaries at the start of 2014 was $1,146. Indeed with this disability installment one in five beneficiaries live in financial hardship. More than 49 percent of all incapacitated beneficiaries get less than $1,000 each month.

Resources
