TOP 5 MYTHS ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY How many times have you heard people make the following statements about filing for Social Security Disability: 1) Everyone gets denied the first time, so you may as well file on your own, then when you get denied, you can get a Disability Representative to appeal for you. 2) Don’t hire a Disability Representative because you will have to pay them something to retain them and then whether you win your case or not. 3) You have to be out of work for at least a year before you can qualify to apply. 4) You may as well plan on getting denied several times and taking 3-5 years or longer to get an answer or approved. 5) If you’ve never worked or worked very little, you can still qualify for SSDI and as long as you’ve worked at least 10 years and had Social Security taxes deducted from your paychecks, you will qualify for benefits. Well if you’re like me, you’ve heard these statements made several times and you may even believe each of them to be true as well, yet they are all incorrect statements. Here’s a great article written by Susan Kelley to dispel these common myths: ************************************************* TOP 5 MYTHS ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY. Susan Kelley. As a critical part of millions of Americans’ lives, Social Security disability is the subject of stories, rants, tips, and misinformation. Here are 5 of the most common myths about Social Security disability benefits, and what the truth is behind the stories: Myth 1: Everyone gets denied the first time they apply. A common misconception is that everyone is denied the first time they apply for Social Security disability. This is simply untrue, in fact about 57% of applicants are denied the first time around. Out of the 57% of denials, 30% are denied due to technical denials, while 27% are denied due to medical reasons. Overall applying for SSD benefits on your own can be a difficult process, but having a reliable advocate or attorney on your side can ensure all information is submitted correctly. Myth 2: Getting a disability attorney is too expensive. Did you know that disability attorneys do not get paid unless you win? Even if you do win, attorneys are only allowed to be paid from your owed retro pay and the amount of money that they receive is capped at 25% or a maximum amount of $6,000. If that looks high to you, consider this: In 2013, the average fee held by the SSA for attorneys and advocates was $2,850. This means that these attorneys were able to win their claimants over $10,000 in a lump sum payment on top of their monthly benefits! Myth 3: You have to be out of work for a year before you can apply for SSD benefits. It is not necessary to be out of work for a whole year before you apply. In fact, If you are projected to be out of work for at least a year due to a health issue it is important that you apply for disability benefits right away. The sooner you apply, the faster you may be approved. Myth 4: It takes years to be approved. The amount of time it takes to be approved for disability benefits is on a case-to-case basis. Some applicants may find that having a disability attorney on their side when applying for benefits can help speed up the claim process. For example, an attorney can make sure all the proper documentation is submitted and manage important dates to keep you on the right track to receiving the disability benefits you deserve. Myth 5: People who have never worked receive SSDI benefits. In order to receive Social Security disability insurance you must have worked at least 50% of the last 10 years full time with Social Security taxes coming out of your checks at the time you apply for SSDI. People who've never worked or not worked enough to have the needed work credits may qualify for SSI which is based on total household income. ***************************************************** If you'd like to know if you qualify for SSDI or SSI, or have questions about the Disability process, go to the link below to schedule your free phone interview with a Disability Representative. No cost, no obligation. We can answer questions and get you on the right path. Don't leave money lying on the table and run out of time to apply and lose all your benefits! You have a limited time to apply. https://xz139.isrefer.com/go/DD/GoKEGo/

I hope this is the right place to post this. I have a question. My brother has been on CA state disability since 2000. When he initially won his case, he was homeless and so he received the maximum benefit. He was barely surviving when they started cutting his benefits; as of June this year they were just cut to $617/month. I started working with him last year. I can tell you without a doubt, the people in that office are the worst government officials I have ever worked with. They lie, they put false statements in his record; they 'lose' forms and letters we send, they won't return phone calls, etc. In June, we filed a reconsideration; it was denied; we filed an appeal on time but they refused to forward it to the ODAR office for the appeal. As soon as the local office received our appeal, they worked on another 'Change Notice' which we just got yesterday cutting him again; this time to $461/mo. He/we are devastated. It is causing him so much anxiety he is getting sick and he needs back surgery as soon as possible. I guess she is trying to keep us from appealing. If we do what she says in the Notice and file another reconsideration, the whole thing starts all over again. We've already been working on this over a year. She could just keep doing this ad infinitum. Here is her computation page: $733.00 Federal SSI -$428.00 $305.00 Subtotal $240.00 Add State SSI (Basic of $156 + No Kitchen allowance of $88.00) $545.40 Total SSI benefit Income Other than SSI: $348.00 Social Security Benefits $100.00 Miscellaneous Income (we think she is counting $100/mo in loan amounts from family; if so, not correct - SSA doesn't count loans as income) $448.00 Subtotal -$ 20.00 Exemption Amount $428.00 Subtotal Income Counted (and deducted from above) She doesn't even seem to know the SSA codes and she's the 'technical expert'. I think she's computing this all wrong. The SSA.gov & California web sites show: $733.00 Federal SSI $156.00 State SSI $889.00 Total Federal and State $ 84.00 'No Kitchen' Allowance (he qualifies for this in California) $973.00 Total max benefit possible She's deducting the Social Security Benefits of $348.00 from the final Social Security Benefit of $733.00! The total amount of my brother's benefit should be $973 and she is giving him $428! Even if, she's allowed to count the $100/month loan we give him as income, rather than a debt, his benefit should still be $873.00 now (with 'No Kitchen Allowance) - not $428. Does anyone understand why this is happening? Does anyone have an attorney who handles something other than new SSI cases? Thanks - your input would be much appreciated!

“I do not have a disability, I have a gift! Others may see it as a disability, but I see it as a challenge. This challenge is a gift because I have to become stronger to get around it, and smarter to figure out how to use it; others should be so lucky.” ― Shane E. Bryan #WednesdayMotivation
