Common Types of Claims with Social Security Disability in Newberry
Social Security Disability was originally added to the Social Security Act in 1954, well before the Americans with Disabilities Act made buildings more accessible, and before the white collar work as well as the internet made working in physical comfort for a living wage easier. At the time, people with extreme physical disabilities had a very hard time getting around and finding meaningful work, leaving them to rely on family members for help, both with money and daily tasks. The Social Security Disability Insurance fund helped people with disabilities and their families focus on helping the disabled person live their best life possible.
Although many people assume that Social Security Disability exists only for those with extreme physical disability, from which they will never recover, or a life-long illness, the program has actually expanded to include temporary disability, with the intention of the recipient returning to work after treatment, and coverage for long-term mental disabilities, like post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder.
Getting Social Security Disability Coverage in South Carolina
If you have an injury or illness that will prevent you from working for at least one year, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. This income can help you focus on your recovery and not worry about trying to find a new type of job, hold down your old job, or even hunt for a job, all of which can cause so much stress that you can be emotionally scarred or physically set back.
No two Social Security Disability applications are the same, which is why it can be so important for you to hire a Social Security Disability attorney to help you with the process and begin the appeals process if/when your first claim is denied.
