_Ohio Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyer
_Securing your disability benefits
It is a common misconception that disability benefits are immediately available to you the moment you become disabled. This is simply not true. The Law Office of Stanley R. Stein stands ready to explain the Social Security disability process to you. As a preliminary matter, you must demonstrate the following to be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits:
There are delays between the date you become disabled and the date your disability benefits begin. You are not entitled to SSDI payments for six months after the date of onset of your disability. Medicare payments begin 30 months after the onset of your disability. The program also limits eligibility based on your monthly earning capacity. Attorney Stanley R. Stein can explain the Social Security Disability program to you in greater detail during a free one-on-one consultation.
If you are ineligible for SSDI benefits, you may be eligible for SSI benefits
If you are disabled and continue to earn more than allowed by the SSDI program because there is no financial alternative for your family, you may qualify for SSI benefits. The SSA will use a precise formula to calculate your eligibility based on your current earning capacity and your current medical expenses. At Stanley R. Stein, we assess your case and help you explore your legal options, including alternative sources of income and healthcare options.
SSI benefits are available to disabled children and disabled adults who have limited access to resources and income and do not meet the earnings requirement for SSDI. To qualify for SSI benefits, you must show that your impairments keep you from obtaining substantial gainful employment and that your impairments can be expected to result in death or to last for at least 12 months.
