Utah Disability Help
Giles Disability Law of Utah focuses solely on Social Security Disability law. We have supportive Social Security Attorneys that are committed to teaching our clients about the Social Security Disability system. We walk our clients through the Social Security Disability eligibility rules and requirements, making sure they submit the best disability claim possible.
Our Areas of Practice Include:
Adults With Disabilities
- If you have been unable to work for 12 consecutive months, or more, it is possible you could qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.

Children With Disabilities
- To be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits for your child with disabilities, you and your family must fall within a certain income and resource limitation.
- The criteria used in determining a child’s disability is different than the criteria used for adults. Social Security uses a three-step process that determines your functional abilities based on specific age categories.

Disabled Widow/Widow Benefits
- If you are 60 years old, you can collect benefits on your deceased spouse’s Social Security record.
- If you are disabled, not married, and at least 50 years old, you may be eligible for disability benefits on your spouse’s Social Security record.
- Dependent children under age 16 may also be eligible for benefits on the deceased spouse’s Social Security record.

Disabled Adult Children
- Disability must be established before age 22. Eligibility is not subject to the family income and resource limitations as found in children under age 18, but rather it is paid on the Social Security account of a parent who is retired or disabled.
