Many people suffering from serious illness believe there it is too difficult to negotiate a the lengthy, burdensome Social Security Disability claim process. However, with the assistance of an experienced disability claim lawyer, the process can be expedited and simplified. In addition, by filing for benefits now, the potential benefit eligibility amount is enhanced beyond death benefits. Potential benefits may include:

  • Dependent benefits: Social Security benefits will be distributed to the family until the youngest child has reached 18 or finished high school. There are separate rules if a child is disabled.
  • Widow/widower benefits: Survivors are eligible for increased amounts of Social Security Disability benefits than individuals filing under their own claim. Widows/widowers may seek Social Security Disability benefits under either disabled widow/widower benefits or early retirement benefits.
  • Benefits during treatment: Often times, chemotherapy, radiation, and other necessary treatments leave an individual incapable of working for an extended period. Individuals who are out of work for a period of 12 consecutive months are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
