Social Security Disability Overview for Accident Victims

  • By: Tony Adderley
  • Published: November 9, 2014

Getting in an accident can be a stressful situation. So many question may come to mind.  How will I pay my bills, do my day to day chores, and more importantly…will I make a full recovery.  If you’ve experienced a critical injury in an auto accident causing a permanent disability, the insurance carrier might be looking to settle the case as speedily as possible and limit the possible damages they will need to pay.

For those who are involved in a non-work-related illness or injury, you might be eligible for short-term disability benefits. As a way to receive Social Security benefits, your disability has to be severe enough to block you from working and performing other primary pursuits. Before you have the ability to apply, you must learn if your disabilities qualify you for disability benefits. In some instances, you might be able to demonstrate that it was difficult to work full-time due to your disability.

The definition of disabled might be considered blurry in today’s economy. If your disability is anticipated to last over 12 months, you may also need to apply for SSI. The disability must last no less than a year. If your permanent disability stops you from working gainfully, then you might be entitled to social security disability benefits.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability

If you are looking to qualify for social security disability, you will likely need to show that you’re indeed afflicted by the specified, qualifying condition. In a number of instances, it may be in your best interest to acquire professional legal assistance if you find the application process confusing in any manner. When it is determined that it is possible to perform different forms of work, you might not be considered disabled and your application could be denied.

You should make an application for benefits once you become disabled. As soon as your claim’s approved, you might begin receiving short-term benefits!  Your benefits may be contingent on the seriousness of your symptoms. Disability benefits are able to make a true difference in boosting your life. Obtaining Social Security benefits for a disability may be a confusing process for some, and it’s important to comprehend how one is eligible so you can receive the help you need with social security disability benefits.
