The Basics of Social Security Disability Benefits
These social security disability benefits are meant to be distributed to workers who are not longer able to perform the tasks at their present job, or at any job they might have had prior to their current occupation. Our society has deemed that these benefits should be distributed to disabled workers because they participated in the workforce for a considerable portion of time, returning a portion of their earnings back to the government in the form of taxes. Those earnings are then returned to the individual now that they are no longer able to work. The assumption is that an individual would have continued working if the opportunity had been available to them, but because of their mental, physical, or emotional injury they are unable to participate in the workforce in any way that they are currently trained to do, or have previously been trained to do. A disability attorney in Wilmington will have the skills and experience necessary to determine whether or not an individual will qualify for these benefits.
