Long Term Disability Representation for Utah, Idaho, Nevada and Hawaii
Giles Disability Law provides long term disability representation for individuals living in Utah, Idaho, Nevada and Hawaii.
You can qualify for long term disability and receive monthly financial assistance if you have become disabled and meet the following guidelines.
You must have worked a certain number of years in a job where you paid Social Security taxes. Specifically, you need to have earned a certain number of work credits; you can earn up to four work credits per year. If you haven't worked long enough when you become disabled, and have low income and assets, you can apply for Supplemental Security Income instead.
How many work credits you need to qualify for disability benefits depends on how old you were when you became disabled.
You also must have a medical condition that meets the Social Security Association’s definition of disability. Social Security Disability benefits are eligible only to those with a severe, long-term, total disability.
Severe means that your condition must interfere with basic work-related activities.
Long-term means that your condition has lasted and is expected to last at least one year.
