Dedicated Social Security Disability Insurance Attorney Serving Texarkana Families
Social Security benefits come from several government programs in place for low-income people with limited earning capability, retirees, and some dependents. Because the government employs strict regulations for dispensing benefits, the application process can be difficult and complex, which is where Graham Law Firm comes in. We help our clients apply for benefits, appeal application rejections and address other roadblocks you may come across.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
To be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you must not only be disabled, but you must also have built up sufficient “work credits” with Social Security. Credits are earned through years of employment in which a portion of your income is collected by the government. Exactly how many credits you will need depends on your age and the year you became disabled, as well as your cost of living. You must have worked some part of five of the last ten years before you became disabled.
What You Can Expect to Receive
If your application is approved, your Social Security disability benefits will include cash payments in an amount determined based on your personal earnings record. Typical payments range from $1,000 to $1,200 a month. Contributors who earned more throughout the course of their working lives — and who, by default, paid higher FICA taxes — will naturally receive a larger benefit.
