People who have worked in “covered employment” for some years (at least ten at a nongovernmental job) can qualify for retirement benefits once they retire at the age of 62. While you can claim your benefits after attaining these years, waiting for your full retirement age has attractive incentives. Correspondingly, your amount will be lowered permanently by a certain percent if your claim is made before reaching the full retirement age. Note- The full retirement age ranges from 65 to 67 depending on your year of birth.
Federally funded and managed by the American Social security administration, these benefits are for children whose parent(s) are retired, disabled, or deceased. A child can get the benefits if he or she is an adopted, biological or a stepchild. But, children have been deemed as vulnerable and bound to miss out on these benefits. In such cases, a social security disability attorney Scott, AR is an indispensible asset for legal counsel and representation.
If you’re the spouse of a disabled or retired worker who is eligible for social security benefits, you and your minors are entitled to such benefits. While getting these benefits does not depend on whether you rely on the worker for support or not, you will be required to present and validate his or her earnings record.
Financially challenged and disabled people can receive SSSI. This type of benefit is stringently need-based, and there is no requirement to have worked in the past. But, to be eligible, you ought to fall within specific income and asset limits. A social disability attorney can help you assess you assets and income and advise you on the way forward when claiming these benefits.
Every case is different and determining your next step while seeking your social security benefits might be challenging. Lisa Douglas can help you understand and fight for the right social security disability benefits that you should be receiving. Besides, Lisa has extensive experience to prepare and present an appeal for a denial of the benefits.
