Millions of Americans suffer from debilitating injuries, diseases, and other life-hindering circumstances. However, many of the afflicted individuals may actually be considered disabled and eligible for certain benefits. Unfortunately, not every disabled person is approved for Social Security disability payments. Hiring an attorney is often a good practice to ensure a fair approval process with the Disability Determination Services office and other agencies. Now, Rand Spear is helping prospective clients who may be eligible for Social Security disability.
The Social Security disability insurance program and the Supplemental Security Income program have been put into place for good reason. In fact, the Social Security Administration estimates that a twenty-year old worker has a 30% chance of becoming disabled prior to retirement. Although those numbers are alarming, the benefits available to eligible disabled persons can be extremely helpful. Not everyone realizes the full scope of benefits available through Social Security disability.
Social Security disability insurance can help more than just the individual who is disabled. In fact, certain family members can qualify for benefits. Spouses aged 62 or older can potentially qualify for benefits. Spouses of any age can qualify for benefits, if they are caring for the disabled person’s child under the age of 16. Children may also qualify for benefits. Unfortunately, not all individuals are aware of the additional benefits associated with Social Security disability. Rand Spear, an injury attorney in Philadelphia, can help clients to understand all aspects of disability. In fact, another commonly unknown detail about Social Security disability relates to medical benefits.
Individuals whom qualify for Social Security disability will be automatically enrolled into Medicare after receiving disability benefits for two years. Government assistance programs can often be confusing and many individuals are not fully aware of available benefits. Rand Spear can help clients understand what they are eligible for and can help them get what they deserve.
