Social Security Disability Law

The first extensive law for disability was passed in 1990 and called the Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA. Many people don’t realize that social security disability laws have been prevalent since 1935. The 1990 law has been passed under the U.S. Department of Justice on 23rd January, at the second session of Congress in Washington D.C. to end the discrimination of disability among people. But the social security is meant for providing financial benefits to the people who during their working period (before the age of 62) become disabled.

The law is known as Social Security Act, 1935. The Social Security Law is made for the SSDI and SSI. They both fall under the same act with divisions and differences. There are all together eleven titles under the social security covering all aspects of benefits for the citizens. Title V, title VI, title VII, VIII, IX, and title XI cover all the aspects of Social Security Disability Law.

These laws very clearly define disability and provide all the information on which the service holders are entitled to disability benefits. These provisions are extended to most of the tax payers also. The taxes act like premiums to the fund for disability. The titles have various sections and sub-sections explaining all the minute details of law regarding the disability and benefits. The Social Security Disability Law has all the provisions in these titles for the working people or tax payers. The other titles are addressed to the senior citizens, congenital disabled people, unemployed benefits, poor people and children with disabilities. They are under the bracket of Supplemental Security Income.
