Case Number: 4:21-cv-00017-PK
Judge: Judge Paul Kohler
Court: United States District Court for the District of Utah (Washington county)
Defendant's Attorney: Amanda A. Berndt and M. Thayne Warner
Description: St. George, UT: SSID, DIWC and DIWW benefits social security disability lawyer represented Plaintiff seeking review of the denial of his application by HHS.
The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. While these two programs are different in many ways, both are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria may qualify for benefits under either program.
To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must first have worked in jobs covered by Social Security. Then you must have a medical condition that meets Social Security's definition of disability. In general, we pay monthly benefits to people who are unable to work for a year or more because of a disability.
Benefits usually continue until you are able to work again on a regular basis. There are also a number of special rules, called "work incentives," that provide continued benefits and health care coverage to help you make the transition back to work.
If you are receiving Social Security disability benefits when you reach full retirement age, your disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits, but the amount remains the same.
