Social Security Disability Insurance is a state mandated insurance policy aimed at protecting employees who get disabled and cannot work for one year or more or whose disability may result in death within a year. The cash benefits are paid to workers who prior to disability earned enough work credit; it may also be paid for eligible family members. This program is paid for by both the workers and employers with part of their Social Security taxes. When combined the tax paid by workers and employers for disability insurance is 1.8 percent of wages.
Many experts agree that having a qualified Social Security Disability attorney or advocate represent you at a disability hearing can greatly increase your chances of receiving benefits. To learn more visit http://www.ladaslaw.com.
