AFAIK, Social Security has no impact on your ability to file bankruptcy. In fact, Social Security is excluded from the "means test", so unless you have substantial other incom…e you should be able to file Chapter 7.
Answer I do believe so. My neighbor is bipolar and she receives it Answer: Yes you can receive Social Security for Bipolar illness. If a person has been dia…gnosed by a doctor, they will need to take their medical records to the local Social Security office and apply. It is NOT an easy task. You will be denied, probably several times, before/if you are approved. You will need to find an attorney that specializes in disability social security issues. That is VERY crucial. The process takes years and during that time, you will need to continuously see a doctor and keep records of all of your visits and medications taken. Your doctor will also need to fill out a form regarding his/her experiences and observations regarding your illness. Once you are approved, you will receive a lump-sum compensation check for the time that you waited for your approval (the time period between your application submission and your actual approval). You will then begin to receive monthly checks. I believe the amount of your monthly checks are based on your employment history. You will have to go before a judge several times before this process is complete.
An otherwise eligible convicted felon may receive Social Security disability or retirement benefits when he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstan…ding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyone living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person is eligible for retirement benefits under SSA guidelines, he or she may receive them after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated. Yes, yes they can.
A felon may receive SSDI benefits if he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstanding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyon…e living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person remains eligible for disability under SSA guidelines, payments resume after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated.
Retirement Benefits Once you qualify for Social Security retirement benefits, you will receive compensation until you die unless you're younger than SSA's full retirement age… (typically 66 for those currently considering retirement) and you exceed the annual earned income cap of $14,160 by enough to temporarily disrupt payment while the amount is being offset. Cash benefits also end if you are incarcerated or enter a nursing home for more than 30 days. When you reach full retirement age, the income limit will be lifted and you will receive benefits until you die. Disability Benefits If you receive Social Security disability payments, your benefits will continue until you are capable of engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (often defined as earning more than $1,000 per month for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month for blindness) or until the payments convert to retirement benefits. As with retirement benefits, disability benefits stop at any time you are incarcerated or maintained in a tax-supported facility for more than 30 days. If you are otherwise eligible, benefits will resume after your release, but you will not receive back pay for the time you were under the government's care.
Yes they can. You would surprised how many offenders of sex crimes and murderers can receive these benefits. Anyone who is mentally handicapped needs ssi or ssd for income bec…ause they can't work. As long as you don't have felony or an outstanding warrant or warrants you can receive assistance.
You can receive social security benfits at the age of 65 or if you were born after 1959, 67. This is said to possibly increase with the increasing number of older individuals …in our country and the dwindling number of younger individuals putting money into social security.
Once you reach retirement age, your Social Security Disability benefits convert to regular retirement benefits, payable at the same rate. You cannot collect an additional amou…nt due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on disability and income, in addition to your month Social Security benefit, but this is a different program and is not administered by the SSA. The amount of SSI paid is adjusted monthly based on what the person was able to earn in that month.
Unless you are blind or disabled, the earliest you can receive benefits is at age 62,
Yes, if they meet the requirements for Social Security, they are eligible.
Angina is not an impairment that's presumed to be disabling. Therefore, you would need to show that it's not treatable and that its effects make it impossible for you to perfo…rm any work that you would qualify for based on your age, education and experience.
Yes, they are separate and unconnected programs.
Well first you need to apply for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration. You can apply at your local SSA office or by calling the 1-800 number.
Call or visit your local Social Security office. If you don't live near one of their field offices, call the Social Security Administration directly at 1-800-772-1213 between …the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm EST, Monday through Friday. That number also has an automated menu that may allow you to address your concern without talking to a staff member.
Answer Absolutely! Congratulations, you old double dipper.
Yes. Social Security is not a mean-tested program, but a form of government-administered pension (the retirement benefits, at least) that you paid into through FICA taxes duri…ng your working years. Unearned income such as pensions, annuities, 401K payouts, interest and dividends, gifts, etc., will not affect your Social Security benefits in any way. If you have not yet reached full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954) but continue working, there are some restrictions on salaries or wages, but once you reach full retirement age, there is no limit on this form of income either.
