Disability Support Benefit

Generally, social security and disability laws were enacted to provide benefits to the disabled, the elderly, the retirees, and even the homeless and the children. However, to disabled persons, these laws primarily provide them the much needed support and assistance that they expect to receive from government.

Through these laws, disabled persons received disability support benefits which include insurance coverage, supplemental income and health insurance benefits under the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

As part of the disability support benefit, the SSA grants insurance coverage to qualified disabled claimants who were unable to work for a substantial and gainful level and whose condition has existed for at least 12 months.

To support disabled persons who are poor and unemployed, the government extends assistance through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The SSI is one of the two major benefits that a disabled person may receive from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

The disability support program also provides disability benefits to adult children of deceased or disabled parents. Children of disabled parents are entitled to receive benefits from the SSA provided the parent is currently receiving disability insurance benefits or the child’s parent may be deceased but insured.

In any case, a disabled widow/ widower is also entitled to received support benefit through any of the SSA’s program such as disabled widow/ widower’s benefits, disability insurance benefit or the supplemental security income.

If you file a claim for any of these disability benefits, you are also eligible for medical insurance through Medicare or Medicaid.

Social security benefits are paid to an individual or his or her family at least in part on the basis of that person's employment record and prior contributions to the system through social security taxes.
