Social Security Disability Insurance

Social Security Disability insurance is a program that provides benefits to people who become disabled and are no longer able to work. While you are working, a certain amount is deducted from your pay and put into the trust fund.

When you become disabled and unable to work, you can then apply to get benefits back from this fund based on how much you have paid in and for how long you have contributed. Please note that it is very important that you apply to this fund within five years after you have stopped working.

At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, we represent disabled workers with their applications for Social Security Disability benefits.

The standard for disability under this program is that you cannot work eight hours a day, five days a week at any job, not just the job that you had been used to doing. The reason for your inability to work can include both physical and mental problems.
