What Is Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability Insurance is a payroll tax-funded federal insurance program of the United States government. It is managed by the Social Security Administration and designed to provide income supplements to people who are physically restricted in their ability to be employed because of a notable disability.
Social Security Disability Insurance (DI) pays monthly benefits to workers who are no longer able to work due to a significant illness or impairment that is expected to last at least a year or to result in death within a year.
While most people who are approved for Social Security or SSI disability will continue to receive their benefit check for years to come, there are things that can cause your Social Security disability benefits to be terminated. If you’re applying for Social Security or SSI disability, or are currently receiving Social Security or SSI benefits, it’s essential to be aware of what could make your disability benefits stop.
The most common reason for someone’s Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits to stop is because they have returned to work. While, in some cases, it’s possible to work while continuing to receive SSDI payments, there are specific rules you need to follow.
More About Us!
Serving South Florida and the Treasure Coast. One of the strengths of our firm is that we practice in several, related areas of law, including personal injury, workers compensation, Social Security Disability, employment law, and more. This is a benefit for our clients if they are dealing with an issue that is complex and involves multiple areas of law.
For example, a workplace injury may involve more than filing a workers’ compensation claim. If someone other than the worker’s employer was responsible for the injury, the worker might have the right to seek additional compensation by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. If the worker is totally disabled as a result of the injury, he or she may need to file a Social Security Disability Insurance claim. If the employer retaliates against the employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim, the employee may need our assistance in the area of employment law.
