If you’ve investigated disability benefits at all, you know that the Social Security Administration (SSA) rules for disability are strict. Even if you’re suffering from a serious heart condition, it may not be severe enough to grant you disability benefits.
The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 has dramatically impacted daily life and business around the globe. Businesses are shuttering as Americans are being encouraged to work remotely and practice social distancing. Social Security claimants should take special note of how the Social Security Administration (SSA) has responded to COVID-19.
If you’re considering applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you may be wondering who, if anyone, in your family might also be eligible to receive benefits if you are awarded.
Social Security Disability Benefits exist to support those who have been stricken with severe and long-term conditions that are so severe that working regularly is impossible. However, sometimes disabilities can strike erratically, making it difficult to qualify for disability benefits, despite having regular bouts of physical or mental issues.
To receive Social Security disability benefits, claimants must demonstrate that they are attending doctor’s visits regularly. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) doesn’t provide any subsidization for claimants to receive those regular check-ups.
Disability benefits exist to help cover the costs of living for those who are unable to work due to severe disabilities and impairments. While disability benefits are awarded by the Social Security Administration (SSA), a federal program, there can be variations in benefits from state-to-state.
