Minnesota Social Security Disability Overview
The social security disability (SSD) program is a federal program administered by Social Security itself. Its aim is to provide financial assistance to people who are considered disabled. It pays out benefits to individuals who are classified as disabled and also to the members of the family if they are insured and have paid their taxes towards the Social Security program.
In case you or your family member are disabled and are having difficulty in availing benefits from the social security system, you need to get your case reviewed by a competent Minnesota Disability Attorney who can represent your case and get you approved for social security disability.
As per the definition of disability, you are considered as qualified for disability benefits if you are not able to work due to some illness, which can lead to death or a chronic medical condition that has lasted for at least one year. If your eyesight is failing and you can be blinded, you are considered disabled.
As per the law, if you qualify for Social Security disability, you will also qualify for health coverage under Medicare or Medicaid programs.
Qualifying for Social Security Disability will get you additional help from the State like SSI or Supplemental Security Income. This is a program that is funded at the federal level by general tax revenue. It helps disabled, blind and elderly people meet their basic needs like food, shelter and clothing.
If you or a loved one is disabled, you need to get a Disability Lawyer who will review your case and help you get approval for Supplemental Security Income. This income is determined on the basis of level of disability and the need of the person. The individual’s assets like bank account, home, car and other property will first be evaluated and the assistance will depend upon these things.
You can also avail SSDI or Social Security Disability Insurance. This insurance program is provided by the Social Security Program for people who have worked and paid FICA or Federal Insurance Contribution Act taxes for a fixed amount of time. This program provides many benefits to a family, if the main provider of the family suffers disability or dies. The disabled workers, their widows or widowers, their children and people who have been disabled in childhood can qualify for these benefits. These benefits are paid every month, the sum determined by the age of the disabled person, his pay scale, and experience. The benefits start from the time of disability and continue till the person’s death or his recovery and re-entry into the work force.
