Social Security Disability...
Social Security is the federal government's program for providing income, in the form of monthly checks, when a worker's earnings stop or are reduced due to retirement, disability or death. It is a required retirement program for everyone who works and payments are deducted from each paycheck a worker receives.
A worker's spouse, including common-law spouses and dependent children, including illegitimate, adopted and stepchildren, may also be eligible for benefits. Unmarried grandchildren who are under the age of 18 or who are full-time students, may be eligible for benefits if they can be shown to be dependant on the income of a grandparent.
When a worker becomes severely disabled, monthly benefits can be provided for the length of the disability. To receive social security disability benefits, you must have a physical or mental impairment which is expected to keep you from being able to perform any substantial employment for one year or you must have a physical condition which is expected to result in your death within one year.
To receive benefits through Social Security or Social Security Disability, you must file a claim and await a decision. If your claim is turned down, you may request a hearing before an administrative law judge of the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).
