Need A Social Security Disability Attorney In Indiana?

It would be a good idea to have a disability lawyer or a social security disability attorney to represent you while filing SSI claims or appeals. These professionals have considerable expertise as well as experience of processing, developing and representing winning claims for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits.

Here are a few general guidelines and tips about Social Security benefits that you may like to know before discussing your case with your attorney in detail:

Age Requirements for SSI Benefits:

There are no age bars for claiming SSI benefits. Since any person of any age group can get disabled, they can claim Social Security benefits. However, the rules are different for individuals above 50 or 55 years in which the rules make it easier for elderly persons to obtain benefits.

Period or duration of continuance of Social Security benefits:

Usually Social Security benefits will continue until one reaches the full retirement age or until one's condition of disablement improves to such an extent that he/she is able to work full time on a sustained or regular basis for a period of more than 9 months. Social Security has initiated a number of steps to encourage persons to try returning to work without endangering their disability payments. So, even if one has worked for a short duration after the commencement of one's disability, one may still be entitled to a full period of disability.
