Social Security Disability

Michigan Social Security Disability or SSI
Disability is controlled by the federal government. As defined in the Federal Social Security Disability Act, "disability" means the "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physician or mental impairment which can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months or result in death.

Michigan Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD)
Social Security Disability Benefits or SSD are paid to individuals who have worked in recent years. Usually you have to work five out of the last 10 years, although requirements differ in certain circumstances.

Michigan SSI Disability Benefits (SSI)
SSI Disability or Supplemental Security Income Benefits are paid to individuals who are poor and disabled whether or not the individual has worked in the past. SSI child's disability benefits are paid to children who are under 18 years old, are disabled and whose parents or guardian are poor.

How much Social Security Disability or SSI benefits an individual gets depends on their past work history or with SSI on the individual circumstances of a disabled person.

Widows - it depends on how much the spouse earned and/or the parent (for a disabled child).

A large portion of claims are denied and have to be immediately taken to further stages. Therefore, it is a good idea to have an attorney in line before you apply.
