As the COVD-19 (Coronavirus) continues to wreak havoc on the World, many Virginia residents are staying proactive as they plan for worse case scenarios.
Unemployment numbers are off the charts and rising, as desperate workers apply for Government lifelines knowing their employers might not be able to stay afloat.
Now that the economic landscape has shifted from that of “best economy ever” to “potential great depression 2” one thing can be certain, all options are on the table and a free over-the-phone consultation with a disability attorney could improve circumstances dramatically if you have a medical disability.
Being unable to work due to a medical disability can be extremely frightening and this reality has never been more real than now.
Many Virginia residents were already dealing with their symptoms and medical limitations while working a desk job or part time.
Now that their job is gone, the last thing they need to worry about is how they’re going to keep a roof over their head or food on the table.
That’s why the U.S. government provides Social Security disability benefits.
Who is Eligible for Social Security Disability?
Eligibility for Social Security disability benefits depends on:
- Eligible work history: to qualify for Social Security disability, a person must have worked enough quarters throughout their working life, and also a certain number of quarters in the preceding three, five or 10-year period. The specific requirements vary depending on the age of the applicant.
- Determination of disability: Social Security offers only long-term disability benefits, so the applicant must show that their ability to perform basic work responsibilities is significantly limited. And, that limitation must be expected to last for at least 12 months or end in death.
Given the state of the economy and the number of unemployed in Virginia seeking benefits, it’s a no-brainer that we will see an influx of social security disability insurance applicants over the next year.
