Social Security Benefits: Work With Our Attorneys To Ensure You Receive The Benefits You Deserve
Advance asset preservation planning helps to stretch retirement dollars. Social Security benefits have a major impact on quality of life for those over 65 years of age. Therefore, it is of extreme importance that qualification, application and appeals are handled correctly and in a timely manner for careful long-term care planning.
Your particular situation may include retirement benefits, Medicare benefits, disability benefits, family benefits and/or survivor benefits. Additionally, Teiger Law Center, P.C., can help with applying for benefits for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren.
Qualifying for disability benefits can be challenging. There are two parts: proving severe physical or mental disability exists and proving that the disabled person is unable to earn a “substantial income” (around $800 per month). Proof of inability to work for a year or more or documentation that the applicant is considered terminal is required.
Retirement benefits are set by government formulas based on your lifetime earnings and whether you have accumulated enough work “credits” to qualify. Retiring early decreases the monthly amount while delaying your payments will yield a higher monthly payment.
The Benefits You Need To Support Yourself And Your Family
Medicare benefits address health issues and the program and its offerings are quite complex. The attorneys at the Alpharetta and Cumming law offices of Teiger Law Center, P.C., will explain the various parts, what they mean, how they apply to you and will start you on the path to qualification.
Family and survivor benefits helped to bridge the gap when a person is unable to care for his or her family anymore. Spouses 62 years of age and over are eligible for benefits once you qualify. Those taking care of a minor child may be eligible regardless of age. Ex-spouses may be eligible to draw on your benefits, depending on the circumstances of your particular marriage. Your spouse, minor or disabled child, or your parents may receive a one-time death benefit of $255, depending on eligibility.
