Wisconsin Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyers
Tragically, workplace injuries can leave a worker unable to engage in any meaningful future employment. If this is your situation, you may be entitled to social security disability benefits in addition to benefits payable under worker’s compensation laws.
In addition to representing you in your worker’s compensation case, we can also assist you in pursuing compensation for social security disability benefits.
The Interaction between Social Security Benefits and Worker’s Compensation Benefits
Unlike worker’s compensation benefits, in which workers are entitled to benefits upon being injured, under the social security laws a person is usually not entitled to benefits until they have missed at least one year of work. Additionally, there are a number of requirements that must be met under these laws, as well as evidence that must be proven to support a claim of total disability.
It’s important to understand that the social security disability benefit laws and process has a presumption that all adults under age 65 have the ability to engage in meaningful employment. In order to receive disability benefits, this presumption must be overcome.
