Colorado Social Security
Disability Insurance Information

Each year, the Social Security Administration provides billions of dollars in disability benefits to Americans. However, being granted these benefits can be a complicated process. Millions of claims are filed each year and most of them are denied.

Social Security Basics

The Social Security system is a shared pool of insurance, paid by employers, employees and self-employed workers. As you work, a mandatory amount is subtracted from your paycheck and paid into the Social Security system.

When you retire, or if you become disabled, you and your dependents may be eligible for payments. However, the payments you receive are not directly tied to the contributions you made while working. The money you paid into Social Security goes into a shared pool, from which benefits to all Americans are paid.

Social Security Disability Insurance

If you or a loved one has become disabled and unable to work for at least 12 months, you may be eligible for a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claim. SSDI pays benefits to those who cannot work for at least a year. Social Security will continue to pay benefits until that individual is able to return to work on a regular basis.

Unfortunately, these rights are not automatic and denials of claims are common. The experienced attorneys at Bachus & Schanker, LLC take pride in protecting the rights of Colorado citizens who have suffered a debilitating injury or illness and have been denied their Social Security Disability benefits.
