Social Security was first established in 1935 as part of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 2nd New Deal. The intention of Social Security was to prevent elderly and retired individuals from falling below the poverty line. Essentially, Social Security is a proactive approach to curbing the amount of people who need additional government assistance after retirement. Over the years, Social Security has been amended and changed. Today, just about any individual who works and earns wages must pay into Social Security. Although an individual will typically need to wait until age 62 to receive social security benefits, there are exceptions for those who become disabled. Unfortunately, these disability benefits are not always easy to obtain. To help those who are having difficulty obtaining their social security benefits, Rand Spear, The Accident Lawyer, is pleased to announce that he is now taking social security disability cases in Philadelphia this November 2013.
In 2013, Social Security paid out over $1.3 trillion and it is estimated that nearly a quarter of all Americans in retirement stay above the poverty line due to Social Security. There is no disputing that social security helps a lot of Americans. However, a system of that magnitude presents many hurdles for individuals that need to take advantage of disability benefits. In order to prevent fraud and misspending, the Social Security Administration has put in place a specific office to hear disability claims. The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review leads the Social Security Administration’s in hearings and appeals for disability benefits.
The fact of the matter is that people need help when they are applying to receive disability benefits through social security. There are many different rules and stipulations regarding eligibility. Often times, younger individuals are denied disability benefits at their first hearing. Thankfully, Rand Spear, The Accident Lawyer has a team of attorneys ready to fight for any individual who is eligible for disability benefits through social security.
