Disabilities affect an entire family. Besides the emotional toll of having an accident or injury, a loss of employment places a significant financial burden on a household. Families can experience great difficulty meeting monthly bills, and they encounter a wide range of out-of-pocket expenses. The Social Security Administration addresses economic insecurity for the disabled through a Social Security Disability Insurance benefits program.
Social Security Disability Insurance is a payroll tax-funded federal program. It is designed to provide income to those who are unable to work due to a long-term disability. It is a program available to those who have paid into Social Security for a specified time. Payments are based on the recipients earning records. The claimant can begin receiving Medicare two years from the date the claimant was entitled to be paid disability benefits. Note that it doesn’t matter if the claimant does not receive the payments until months later because the claim was not yet decided – the two-year countdown begins once the entitlement is given.
To meet the criteria to receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, a person must be under the retirement age and have a qualifying severe injury or illness, as defined by the Social Security Administration. An claimant’s physical or mental disability must be expected to last for more than one year or considered a permanent condition. It must limit an claimant’s function so that they are unable to work.
