http://www.joedibartolomeo.com/ After suffering an injury or an illness that prevents you from working or returning to your current job position in Oregon, you may be wondering if you are entitled to Social Security benefits. To understand more about the disability programs administered by the Social Security Administration, watch this video.
There are two disability programs including Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). SSI is a program based on disability and financial need, whereas SSDI is an insurance program. If you have paid into Social Security over time through your paychecks or withholdings, you basically have bought an insurance policy from the federal government that will provide you with benefits if you are not able to work.
In order to receive the benefits that you need and deserve, you have to prove that you have a medical problem and that you can no longer keep doing the same type of work. Because of the complexities of these types of cases, it is important that you have an attorney on your side who can help strengthen your claim and guide you through the process.
