If your Louisiana car accident injuries have left you permanently disabled or resulted in any injury that makes it impossible for you to work for 1 year or longer, you may be entitled to file for Social Security disability benefits in addition to seeking damages through a Louisiana car accident lawsuit.
In order to apply for Social Security disability benefits, your disability must keep you from working for at least 1 year. In addition, you will have to pass two tests, a recent work test and a duration of work test to help determine your eligibility. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will also verify what, if any, income you are producing monthly and ensure that income is below their established income limits.
Social Security will look at all the information relevant to your claim in order to determine what benefit programs, if any, you may be eligible for. However, you’ll also need to provide ample evidence of your medical condition and its effect on your ability to work.
You can apply for Social Security disability benefits online, call to make an appointment at your local Social Security office or call to make an appointment that can take place over the phone. The types of information that you will have to provide in order to begin your Social Security disability benefits claim include:
You will also be required to fill out additional paperwork pertaining to your medical records and other requested information for the SSA.
It can take several months for your disability application to be processed, and unfortunately, since most disability applications are initially denied, you may have to file an appeal.
