San Antonio Adult Disability Benefits Lawyers
When an adult becomes disabled their eligibility to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is based on their work history as well as family income. If an individual has been unable to work due to a disability that has effected them since childhood, however, receiving the necessary SSD benefits can be considerably more difficult.
The San Antonio attorneys at the Chris Mayo Law Firm are familiar with the complications that accompany filing for disability benefits, especially for adults that have been disabled since childhood. Our knowledgeable lawyers can help evaluate your eligibility in addition to helping you pursue SSD benefits when applicable.
Determining SSD Eligibility for Adults Disabled Since Childhood
In order for an adult that has been disabled since childhood to receive SSD benefits, the following requirements must be met:
- The individual must be over the age of 18
- The disability must have begun before the individual was 22-years-old
- The individual must not be married
- One or both of the individual’s parents must have been receiving Social Security retirement or disability benefits
- If the individual’s parents are deceased, they must have worked long enough to earn Social Security Disability benefits
It is important to note that an adult’s benefits continue as long as that individual suffers from their disability. If you have suffered your entire life from a disability that prevents you from being able to work, contact an SSD lawyer to discuss your options in receiving the benefits that you need.
