Types of Social Security Disability Benefits
In most states, medical and disability benefits will be paid out according to state approved formulas. These benefits will be paid in the form of a check bi-weekly and will be two-thirds of your average weekly wage. The maximum amount an individual may be able to collect is also set by the state.
Some types of Social Security Disability benefits include:
- Death benefits
If a worker dies resulting from an accident within one to five years of this accident, and has had a continuous disability from the accident, the surviving dependents of the worker may be eligible to collect benefits.
- Impairment income benefits
Impairment income benefits are paid to those individuals injured, which results in a permanent impairment rating.
- Permanent impairment benefits
These benefits are paid to individuals who have become disabled as a result of amputation, face or head disfigurement, or serious loss of vision.
- Permanent total benefits
There benefits are paid to individuals who are not able to return to work or even perform light duty jobs due to their disabilities.
- Supplemental benefits
These benefits are paid to individuals who have an impairment rating of 20% or more. These benefits are paid to an employee that was injured and has not returned to work, cannot find employment, or has returned to work and is earning less than the pre injury wage.
As these situations tend to be very complex, it may be difficult for an individual to determine which type of disability benefit is right for them. Thus, our attorneys are here to help guide you in the right direction and recover the benefits you deserve.
