SSD And The Benefits Disabled Workers Can Expect
If you are a disabled worker, you may feel overwhelmed and worried about your future. You likely have questions about Social Security Disability (SSD) and what specific benefits you may be eligible to receive.
At the law office of Arthur J. Branan Jr., I understand the uncertainty my clients face and am proud to provide the compassionate and skilled guidance they need to work through the complex Social Security Disability system. I am passionate about representing people who are seeking SSD benefits in Louisiana.
Getting To Know All About The Benefits
Eligibility for Social Security Disability is based on a few factors:
- The number of work credits earned by an individual over the past 10 years
- The amount of FICA taxes paid by an individual into the Social Security system
- Whether an individual has a qualifying disability (this is generally defined as a disability that has lasted 12 months or longer or is expected to last 12 months or longer — or if the disability is expected to result in death)
If the qualifications have been met, these are the benefits you may be entitled to receive (Title 2 benefits):
- Disability insurance benefits
- Disabled child benefits
- Disabled widow benefits
This is a complex area of the law. I can explain the specific requirements for each of these three types of benefits, and help you determine what benefits you may be eligible to receive. I can also determine if you qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, which is a needs-based program.
