Five Things You Should Know About Social Security Disability
Social Security disability is the subject of frequent misconceptions and even some outright distortions by its critics. This can stigmatize those who rely on the program or even discourage qualified persons from getting the help they need and deserve.
The best way to deal with false information is to counter it with the truth. So here are five important facts you should know about Social Security disability:
- It’s not a handout: Disability insurance is funded by hard-working, tax-paying people like you– who pay into the system. Think of it as akin to the automobile or homeowner’s coverage you already carry. Its purpose is to protect those who lose the ability to support themselves due to prolonged illness or accidents.
- It’s closely scrutinized: One of the biggest myths about Social Security disability is that it’s rife with corruption. In reality, it has a strict no-tolerance policy where fraud is concerned. Those who try to cheat the system are aggressively investigated and often prosecuted.
- It’s not a “get rich quick” scheme: Disability payments are structured to provide a modest but decent standard of living for their beneficiaries. Nobody who’s on disability is enjoying a lavish lifestyle at the government’s expense.
- It provides real benefits for our nation’s economy: Disability payments are used by their recipients to pay for basic necessities like food, clothing, housing, and utilities– industries that employ millions of Americans.
- Its rules can be complex: This is one of the reasons why our team of Virginia lawyers for Social Security disability provides such a valuable service. They have the experience and know-how to guide our clients through the complicated process of applying for benefits and getting approved.
