How much do dwarfs get from Social Security a month?

Don't automatically assume a dwarf, or little person, is disabled. Many work in a professional capacity, just like their taller counterparts. Some are doctors, lawyers, college professors, salespeople, etc.

If a little person becomes fully disabled or retires, he or she receives benefits based on how much he paid into Social Security during his working years, just like anyone else.

Someone who is disabled before age 22 receives benefits based on a parent's work record.

Can you receive disability for pregnancy?

Thanks to the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) of 1978, all GROUP disability insurance policies for employers with at least 15 employees must treat pregnancy as if it were an injury or illness, subject to the other terms of the policy (in other words, pre-existing condition exclusions, waiting periods, elimination periods, the contract's particular definition of "disability", and proof of loss provisions all still apply). It does not matter who pays the premiums as long as it is a group contract. Furthermore, it has become the industry standard for group disability policies for employers with less than 15 employees is to also treat pregnancies as illnesses.

On the other hand, individual (non-group) disability policies, even those purchased through payroll deduction and "sponsored" by an employer (but are individually "owned" by the employee) typically exclude benefits for disabilities caused by routine pregnancy and deliveries. This may vary from contract to contract and is subject to state insurance laws.

It should be noted that disability benefits due to pregnancy are UNRELATED to whatever MATERNITY LEAVE an employee may be entitled to: Maternity Leave is a type of Family and Medical Leave which allows employees to miss work for a certain amount of time without fear of loosing his or her job, but it is typically unpaid (which employees then supplement with unused vacation time, sick pay, or their own personal savings). This is usually available also for adoptions or for the fathers (called PATERNITY LEAVE). Disability Benefits, when applicable, are only payable for the period of time the mother is physically or mentally unable to work due to the pregnancy and/or delivery (e.g. 6-weeks postpartum for a normal delivery). The amount of maternity leave and the duration of disability benefits available to a new mother are unrelated to each other and should not be confused.

Therefore, it is possible for an employee to have leave available without disability benefits; disability benefits without leave available (for example when leave has been exhausted earlier in the year and/or when FMLA or State leave laws do not apply); or both leave and disability benefits of differing durations.

So for example, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 (for larger employers) as well as state FMLA-like laws may allow an employee to miss work for twelve weeks, while the disability benefit may only be through the sixth week postpartum. This leaves the employee without any pay for the "extra" time off when she would be physically and mentally able to work following her recovery from the delivery but has chosen not to return to work to spend more time with the baby.

When preparing for a leave from work due to pregnancy, the employee should always discuss both maternity leave AND any disability benefits available with their employer to avoid any surprises once the leave/disability begin.

Why is it necessary to have a social security number before you apply for a job?

Technically it's not. It's necessary to have a social security number before you start a job, which is slightly different.

The US requires that all businesses obtain proof that their employees are actually eligible to work in the country, in the form of either a social security card or a "green card" (A US Passport can be used instead of a social security card, but it will still have the social security number on it.)

If you have forgotten your Social Security number how can you find out what it is?

  • Follow this link to the official Social Security Administration website. This particular page gives instructions on how to get a replacement card if your original one has been lost or stolen.
  • You can get the form needed from your nearest SSA office. Or download the application for replacing a SS card at the SSA site. I believe it is SS5 (not positive though).
  • How about look at your last years' tax return copy? I bet it is there.
  • Look at old tax forms, old paycheck stubs, copies of government forms. Ask your employer or your bank.
  • If all else fails, call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213.

How old do you have to be to collect Social Security benefits?

If you have accumulated enough work credits (typically 40) the earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is 62. At that age, your monthly payment would be about 75% of the amount you would receive by waiting to retire at SSA's full retirement age.

Full retirement age:

  • Born before 1943...................65
  • Born between 1943-1954........66
  • Born in 1955.........................66 + 2 months
  • Born in 1956.........................66 + 4 months
  • Born in 1957.........................66 + 6 months
  • Born in 1958.........................66 + 8 months
  • Born in 1959.........................66 + 10 months
  • Born in 1960 or later...............67

You can receive Social Security disability benefits at any age if you have sufficient work credits (on your own or a spouse's work record, or on a parent's work record if disabled before age 22) and SSA determines your condition prevents you from engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA).

How much could you earn in 2010 and still receive Social Security benefits?

For the 2010 tax year, the answer depends on your age and whether you're drawing Social Security benefits for retirement or disability.

Retirement

If you've reached full retirement age (65 for people born prior to 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954), there is no limit to how much you can earn.

In the year you reach full retirement age, you can earn $37,680 annually, but for every $3.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from your benefits until the month your reach full retirement age.

If you are under full retirement age, you can earn $14,160 per year without incurring a penalty. For every $2.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from benefits.

Disability

People on disability can earn up to $1,000 per month ($12,000 per year) for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month ($19,680 per year) for anyone legally blind. Earning more than these limits would be considered engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), would trigger a continuing disability review, and likely result in an end to the person's disability status with Social Security.

Any month a disabled person earns more than $720.00 is counted toward the nine-month trial work period, and may result in a continuing disability review (CDR).
