New data projections reveal that the Social Security Administration's cost of living adjustment (COLA) for 2024 will significantly decrease.
The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) offers financial assistance to individuals with disabilities primarily through two programs:
Disabled veterans who were injured while serving in the military may be eligible for both VA benefits as well as Social Security disability benefits. Each of these types of benefits is available separately.
Do you expect to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in the near future? If so, you should be aware that the SSDI application and process is oftentimes a complex task—potentially requiring you to gather evidence, complete paperwork, attend hearings, and more.
Luckily, it is not a task that you need to complete on your own. An SSDI attorney can help you navigate the process.
Perhaps you are reluctant to hire a disability lawyer for an understandable reason: You’re not sure you can afford one.
If you cannot work for at least 12 months due to a disabling condition, you may be considered disabled by the SSA. This means you may qualify for disability benefits which will help you shoulder the financial hardship due to the fact that you are too disabled to go to work and, thereby, meet your everyday financial needs.
