 For disability cases it depends on how much you paid in during your working years.  Social Security used to mail annual statements.  The statements provide a year by year listing of your earnings and an estimate of your retirement and disability benefits.   As of 2011, the SSA no longer mails out the statement, except to people 60 or over who are still working or not yet receiving benefits. As of May 1, 2012, you can request a statement online. The Krebs Law Firm LLC offers a free case… [read post]

  Far too often I hear people say something along the lines of "I'm disabled because I cant find a job"  or  "the only job I can find doesn't pay me what my old job did"  Unfortunately these are not the standard the Social Security Administration uses.   Social Security uses the following CFR § 404.1566. Work which exists in the national economy. Inability to obtain work. We will determine that you are not disabled if your residual… [read post]

Processing time runs from the day of the filing of a hearing request to the date of decision.

If you are 50 or older and can no longer do the work you have done in the past 15 years, then Social Security must take your age into account when considering whether or not you can do other work. These rules are the Medical-Vocational Guidelines also known as the "Grids". If you are 50 years of age or older and are limited to unskilled sedentary work, Social Security will presume that you cannot adapt or transition to other work. This can lead to vastly different results in a claim. A 49 year old… [read post]
