Disability Programs

The disability must last, or be expected to last, at least one year. There are no short term disability programs through the Social Security Administration. If claimant’s medical conditions do not result in an inability to work for over one year, then the claimant will be found not disabled. It is important to recognize that the Social Security Administration looks at functional capacity of each individual after considering all of a claimant’s physical and mental impairments.


Medical Coverage

Social Security Disability have kept millions of hard working Americans out of poverty. In addition to monthly benefits for the disabled claimant, the claimant’s non-adult children will often be entitled to benefits. Moreover, the claimant will be eligible for Medicare after 30 months of being found disabled (or even sooner is some specific situations). Individuals approved for SSI will typically receive Medicaid. In our experience, the chance to receive medical coverage is worth the wait all by itself.
