Social Security Disability Claims - What an Elder Law Attorney Needs to Know
If a 55 year old disabled widow, who has never worked, approached you for estate planning, would you know if she is eligible for a disability benefit under Social Security? What if a 63 year old construction worker with chronic pain asks you about filing for Social Security disability--how do you respond? What do you say to the elderly couple who is lovingly taking care of their 20-year-old autistic son without any government assistance? This session will provide answers to these questions and more by presenting an introduction to Social Security disability practice, covering: what it means to be disabled for Social Security purposes, the type of evidence necessary to establish a claim, who is eligible to file a claim, what will disqualify a claimant from receiving benefits, the disability determination process, the four-step appeals process, differences between SSDI and SSI, statutory restrictions on fees, and resources for further inquiry.
