Social Security Disability Lawyers and Social Security Disability Attorneys

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is an insurance program, run by the federal government, that is payroll-funded. This means that Social Security Disability is funded by a tax withheld from employees’ paychecks. Social Security Benefits are also sometimes called Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) or “Title II.”

If an employee is unable to work for an extended period due to a disability, Social Security Disability provides income until that employee is able to return to work, or, in the event that the disability is permanent, SSDI guarantees income.

There are fixed and stringent requirements in order to qualify for Social Security Disability. Especially in light of the recent issues within the Social Security Administration and the limited funds available for Social Security Disability benefits claimants, it is essential that Social Security Disability claimants have their claims filed properly. Because of this, a Social Security Disability lawyer can be of great service to a disabled worker when filing for SSDI. A disability attorney will be able to effectively handle the government paperwork and ensure that the worker recieves the disability benefits he or she needs.
