SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS
In order to qualify for social security benefits, members applying must be suffering from a physical or mental impairment that is keeping him or her from doing any important work for at least a year. Another consideration is that disability condition is anticipated to result in death of disabled member.
Disabled members are expected to file their disability claim soonest time possible since disability claims really takes a long time to process. In most cases monthly disability benefit if approved begins on sixth month of disability.
The Social Security Disability Benefits is reduced when members have other government disability benefits. The standard rule for amount of disability payments that a member or his/her family is supposed to receive must not exceed 80% of averaged earning before a member becomes disabled.
The Social Security Benefits is given until memberís condition improves and returns to work. However, if ever member didnít recover from his or her disability disability benefit continues as well as Medicare benefit.
