Lantana Social Security Disability Lawyer and Attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq. offers expert representation in appeals of Social Security Disability claims. The Social Security Disability programs are the largest of Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. The Social Security Disability programs are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability may qualify for benefits under either program.
Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to workers and their families if they worked long enough and recently (generally, 5 out of the past 10 years) and paid Social Security taxes. Supplemental Security Income or SSI pays benefits based on financial need and is funded by general revenues of the U.S. Government.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, over $123 billion in disability insurance benefits were paid to 10.2 million disabled workers and their families in 2010. That number is anticipated to increase by at least 20% over the coming years. Requests for benefits have increased with the aging of the baby boomers and the recession, the latter suggesting that people-in some cases-file for disability not because they are unable to work, but because they are unable to find work. According to the Social Security Trustee’s Report, disability program revenue will only cover 86% of benefits in 2018, a few short years from now.
