When it comes to achieving health and well-being, suffering a major health event is rarely anything anyone expects. However, when illness or injury strikes, it can leave a person in a fragile position in terms of their health. Sometimes these incidents will heal after treatment, physical therapy or other medical care. However, some will leave a person's health less than whole for one year or longer.
If a health change has left you disabled and unable to work for a year or more, you likely are wondering about your options. If you've worked most your life, you have likely contributed wages by means of tax from your paycheck. They are known as work credits, and if you've earned enough by contribution, SSD benefits can become available to the disabled and unable to work.
At Brian Zwick Stone & Associates, we know how impactful this health change has been and how much of a life transition the disabled can experience during this time. We aim to make it easier for our clients. Applying for Social Security disability can mean receiving benefits to help those who can no longer work after suffering an illness or injury. Ensuring the process goes smooth and moves as quickly as possible is key to getting benefits faster.
The longer a disabled person waits for their benefits, the more hardship is put on them and their family. We believe in minimizing this experience as much as possible. There are several steps in applying for disability benefits. Our team of legal professionals are here to aid and assist.
