A common question about Social Security Disability benefits is whether a worker can receive retirement benefits from another source and still receive SSD payments. Some workers may have heard that the Social Security Administration reduces SSD benefit payments when a beneficiary receives income from other sources such as pensions, 401ks, and employer-provided disability insurance.

If you worked for a government employer that did not pay into the Social Security system, your disability benefits may be reduced.

We recently blogged about the wait times for Miami disability claims--almost a two year wait for hearings. Other places with similar wait times include Columbia, South Carolina; Brooklyn; Cincinnati; Dover, Delaware; Greensboro, North Carolina; and Rochester, New York. All of these have an average wait time of 20 months. But what about everyone else?

The media frequently blames boomers for the ills of American society. An example is the so-called problem with Social Security Disability (SSD). Pundits point to the demographic bulge created by the Baby Boomers as one reason for the financial crisis experienced by the SSD program in recent years.
The argument goes like this: Older workers are more likely to become disabled and unable to work. Because there are so many older workers right now, the demand on the disability benefits system has increased. Is this actually the case?

A question we hear often from clients and potential client: "What am I supposed to do for income if I am disabled and can't work, and how am I supposed to pay my bills?"

The truth is unfortunately simple: there is no easy answer, and it can potentially be a very difficult and trying time while waiting for a disability claim to be approved. We often encourage clients to seek out help from family members when possible, and look into public assistance if and when they qualify. Even still, it can be difficult to make ends meet-especially when the time frame for disability decisions can take longer than two years.

But now it could be even harder to make ends meet with the possible loss of food stamp assistance. Click the link below to visit our blog and read more.

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits isn't an easy process. It not quick, either. There are endless forms, questionnaires, and requirements. And, at the end of it all, the likelihood that a claim will be approved is slim. In fact, the majority of Initial Applications for disability are denied.

But what if your claim took TWENTY years to be awarded? Click the link below to visit our blog and read more about this case.

People thinking about applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) often wonder whether they can own a home and still be approved for disability benefits. The short answer is that owning a home usually does not affect your eligibility for either SSD or SSI. However, there are important differences between the two programs that could be affected by home ownership.

In many instances, you can continue to own your home whle receiving disabilty benefits through SSD or SSI.

My court date was 8-15-13 applied with u in 2009, I arrived @ court the officer told me the rep from your firm was not there yet 5 minutes before court was due to start, the same officer said she just went in to that office, I went in she asked my name & then told me to wait to be called. We then were called I followed her from 40 feet behind her, she recited my medical history, leaving out huge gaps, then the judge ?ed me, when the judge asked her pointedly twice did she have anything to say, the reply was no your honor!! I have of course received the rejection letter from court. @ no time did I feel I even had council!! The rejection letters also say the case is only from 2012! Not 2009. What they have done for me I cannot not tell, other than to let me think for the past 5 years that I had experts handling my case. I am not just disappointed, I would love to sue u for misrepresentation, & anything else I can find. I have yet to hear from your office since my court date, only proving that you & your company r a front u steal from the poor, more than does the government, & that is saying a lot. Why do we have to engage a legal firm, to have r monies returned? Why r you not to be held responsible for the huge amount of medical bills & loss of years placing my trust in your firm? Whoever peruses this beware, if they represent you in court & you win, you r paying them for nothing, from my experience with your firm you still go to court & represent yourself. I am ashamed that I believed in your company. I pray this will keep others like me who only want our own monies back, from wasting 5 or more years as I did. I pray you too, will seek other legal firms who actually represent their clients. With Deep Mistrust & Total Disgust with your firm, Sincerely, Wanda L. Stafford

Avoid this place like the plague. I contracted them looking for representation in my disability claim with the social security administration. They wanted me to jump through all these hoops and produce lots of documentation with no promise that they would actually represent me. They they wanted me to pay a large fee up front. They wanted me to get my doctor to make illegal claims in my medical record and suggested we needed to commit fraud to get the claim approved. When I said no and refused to do what they wanted, they continued to call to, "... see how it's going" as though I would hire them anyway. Don't do it. Stay away!
