Social Security and Inability to Get Medical Treamtent

Social Security Disability

While the poor economy and high unemployment is spurring more people to talk with a Disability Lawyer about Social Security Disability it also has had another impact.  While more people are interested in finding out about Social Security, many are finding it difficult to put together the necessary medical evidence to present a successful case for Social Security Disability.  In instances where a person is interested in obtaining Social Security Disability but is unable to obtain medical treatment due to a lack of health insurance and the high cost of medical treatment it is of the utmost importance that they hire a Disability Lawyer to handle their case, as that will give them the best opportunity to work around there lack of supporting medical records.

The medical records regarding the person’s injury are the main body of evidence that the Social Security Administration will look at when determining an individuals ability to qualify for Social Security Disability.  Without any evidence supporting the person’s claim, the Social Security Administration will be hard-pressed to grant Social Security Disability without the use of a trial and this is why, in situations like this, a Disability Lawyer is needed.

A Disability Lawyer will be able to work around the dearth of evidence and give you the best chance of obtaining Social Security Disability.  Your Disability Lawyer will be able to bring out testimony that focuses on how your disability impacts your daily life and your ability to do your job.  Also, your Disability Lawyer will show what steps you have taken to obtain medical treatment and why it has been impossible for you to do so.  Without a Disability Lawyer at this stage it will be a very difficult case.

Does it matter how much money I have for Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability

Social Security has a few different options for people that are dealing with a disability.  Sometimes people think that they may not be able to collect Social Security Disability because they make too much money or have too many assets, which will make them ineligible for Social Security Disability; this is one of the reasons it is always good to at least consult with a Disability Lawyer before attempting to apply for Social Security Disability benefits.

In relation to Social Security Disability there is no limit on the amount of assets you can have.  The issue in Social Security Disability is whether or not you and your Disability Lawyer can show that you are medically unable to perform the duties of your job.  As Social Security Disability is a public disability insurance program, you are entitled to collect on your policy if you are disabled.

While you may be able to receive Social Security Disability benefits despite your other assets, the amount you receive may vary.  An example of this is when you receive disability benefits from Social Security and Workers Compensation.  In that instance the amount you receive from Workers Compensation will act as a set-off for your Social Security payments.  This means that the amount you receive from Social Security is less but in whole you receive more money than if you would have Social Security Disability payments alone.  Workers Compensation is not the only program that could impact your Social Security Disability payments and that is why it is good to speak with a Disability Lawyer at the outset of your case.
