How much will I get for my disability claim?

The dollar amount Social Security Disability or SSi benefits an individual will get depends on how much that individual worked in the past and earned during that time or in the case of SSi it depends on the individual's claim circumstances . For disabled widow's, it depends on how much the spouse earned and for a disabled child, it depends on how much the parent earned.


What typically happens in a Social Security Disability Claim process?

Typically you are denied your Disability Claim in the initial stage (good reason why it is wise to have an experienced disability attorney).

Only about 40% of the claims are approved at that stage sometimes less. The next stage, Disability Reconsideration, about 20% of the individuals win at that stage. The last stage, the Hearing stage is where the individual actually has a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. The social security disability or ssi disability hearing is informal with only the judge, his secretary and often times the judge will have a vocational expert present to testify as to what jobs the individual can perform.
