“Let Us Fight for You!” – An Invitation You Might Find Worthy Responding To

In its website, the Chris Mayo Law Firm says, “For individuals whose lives have been affected by disabilities, the Social Security disability programs can provide a crucial source of financial support and assistance, allowing them to support themselves and their families. Whether a person has suffered the disability for their entire lifetime or has only recently become disabled, the benefits provided through Social Security disability programs may be essential to maintaining their way of living.

Unfortunately, applying for and receiving these benefits can often be a long, complicated process, and many individuals, who badly need these benefits often have their initial claim denied. For this reason, legal assistance is often crucial in helping disabled individuals get the help they need.”

To help individuals in their claim, Social Security Disability lawyers call out to them with the invitation, “Let us fight for you!” This invitation is regardless of the Social Security program individuals need to apply into to obtain benefits.

One such program is the SS Long-term Disability Benefits, through which the Social Security Administration (SSA) grants cash benefits to eligible individuals suffering from total permanent disability. This disability should be total or permanent, which will render a person unable to perform any type of work, including the one that he/she had before being disabled, and which can either last for more than a year or result in death.

The SSA has an impairment listing manual, more familiarly known as the “blue book,” which contains serious types of disabilities. If a member’s disability is included in this listing, then he/she may automatically qualify for the SSDI cash benefits. Any impairment that is also serious, but is not included in the list, may still qualify a member to receive the cash benefits. Thus, a migraine headache, for example, that is too severe so that it becomes impossible for an individual to have a full-time job is also very likely to be determined by the SSA as a qualifying disabling condition.

Additionally, children or those below 18 years old, who have limited income and resources and whose disability has resulted in severe functional limitations may be able to apply for the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits (the Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI disability benefits may be availed of only by employees/workers who have earned the number of credits that the SSA requires. These credits can be earned through the monthly payment of Social Security taxes. This payment is reflected in employees’ pay slip under the heading “FICA,” for Federal Insurance Contributions Act).
