There are many misconceptions that I deal with Missouri social security disability claimants. Contrary to what many believe, The United States Social Security Disability program has some of the strictest requirements in the world for disability benefits. To get disability benefits, a person must be able to show that they have an impairment which is expected to last for at least one year or result in death. These impairments must be so severe that they make the person unable to perform any substantial work in the national job market, not just their previous work. The idea of “I can’t go back to my old job’ is probably the number 1 of the misconceptions that I deal with Missouri social security disability claimants
Another common misconception is people can get partial benefits much like VA disability or get benefits for a few months while recovering from illness or injury. This is not true. SSDI does not include temporary or partial disability benefits. Because the eligibility requirements are so strict, Social Security disability beneficiaries are among the most severely impaired people in the country and tend to have high death rates.
Another common misconception is once a person starts receiving benefits they are on SSA benefits for life. Not true. Social Security conducts review of people who receive disability benefits to ensure they remain disabled and eligible for SSA benefits. Most people under the age of 50 who receive disability from the SSA can count on being reviewed after 2-3 years and periodically thereafter until they reach 65.
