The History of Social Security Disability
There is a social contract in the United States that dates back to the 1930s. In addition to a safety-net retirement system given when a worker reaches normal retirement age, this social contract provides that workers will pay a portion of their income, usually by payroll deductions, towards Social Security Insurance. This contract provides that if you pay into the system over a minimum amount of time, our government will pay money to you based on the amount paid in by you if you become disabled before your eligibility for retirement.
While the system is designed to aid individuals who are dealing with the effects of a severe personal injury, it can be difficult to understand. The problem is defining which disabilities qualify for such payments and whether a particular claimant qualifies. At our firm, we help you understand this complex process. Our experienced attorneys are members of the National Organization of Social Security Claimant Representatives (NOSSCR). For more than 40 years, we have offered options to clients going through the process of filing for Social Security Disability.
