The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 to give civil rights protections to those with disabilities. If you have suffered an injury that has resulted in a disability, you may be able to collect compensation from Social Security.
Social Security taxes (FICA) are withheld from your paycheck when you work. You are only eligible for Disability Insurance Benefits if you have paid a certain amount of Social Security tax over a specific period of time. For an individual over 30 years of age to be insured for Disability Insurance Benefits, the person must have paid FICA in no less than twenty calendar quarters during the forty calendar quarters just prior to the time your total disability began. That means that you must have worked and paid Social Security tax for five out of the last ten years before you became totally disabled. Worker's who become disabled before age 31 need fewer quarters.
An individual must prove that he or she became disabled while disability insurance coverage was in force or that person is not entitled to Disability Insurance Benefits, even if the medical condition is very serious.
If you feel that you qualify for this benefit or if you are not sure if you qualify and would like assistance contact our disability lawyers today for a free case evaluation.
