The video talks about Social Security Disability benefits and how they can help someone who has been hurt. Social Security Disability is a benefit for people who have been in the workforce long enough to accumulate a certain number of points. The benefit will pay out a monthly amount if the applicant meets the criteria.
People who are unable to work may qualify for Social Security Disability application benefits if they meet certain requirements. The first requirement is that the individuals must have a debilitating illness that will last at least one full year.
That information can be verified by the person’s doctor. An applicant must also be unable to obtain gainful employment and hold a full-time job. However, the person may not be eligible if he or she is able to do a lighter type of work than the previous job. Many people don’t understand that part of it. A good example is someone who has an injured knee and has undergone surgery. The person may not be able to perform a server’s position in any capacity. However, a place of employment may offer that person a job sitting down and answering phones. This person would most likely be ineligible for SSDI.
