Who Can File a Social Security Disability Claim?

social security disability, Bachus and Schanker

There are many reasons that someone could file for social security disability, but many people may not know that they qualify. Bachus and Schaner, attorneys at law, understand this and present an in depth look at what it means to qualify when filing a social security disability claim.

In order to apply for social security disability you must first have been considered a payer into social security. This means you must have been a working citizen and part of your paycheck went towards social security. This is generally taken out by your employer automatically for you.

You must do your research and be realistic about the amount of money you believe you’re owed. You can look at updated information and age based rates on the Social Security Administration‘s website.

Much of the information laid out by the Social Security Administration can be hard to understand and relate to. This is why it’s a good idea to seek a lawyer’s help. Often, when you’re trying to qualify for social security benefits you must be able to prove that you are reasonably unable to perform the appropriate work duties necessary for holding a job. This will require specific paperwork from doctors and should be somewhat easy to acquire.

Getting started on the process as soon as you can will allow you to be more organized in making your claim. It can take months and even years to qualify and the sooner you start the sooner you can get your benefits.
