SSD claims are still being processed, but beware of scammers

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused considerable anxiety among many Americans -- not just for their health but for their financial well-being. People who receive Social Security payments, including Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, may wonder if those payments will be interrupted or delayed.

Understanding SSD benefits if you're nearing retirement age

If you're one of the millions of Americans receiving Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits because an illness, injury or disability has left you unable to work, you know how much you've come to count on that money as a source of income.

How long will I wait for my disability benefits to start?

Not everyone with a disability is unable to work. Employers make accommodations every day to allow those with disabling conditions the chance to earn a living in areas where they have training, education and experience. In fact, most people prefer to have gainful employment as long as they have the strength and capacity to get up every morning and go to work.

Getting Social Security benefits for someone with autism

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can affect both adults and children. For some, the impact is mild. For others, autism can make it difficult to interact with people or to have a job. Adults who cannot earn a living due to their autism my qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Who is eligible to receive SSI benefits?

Many people aren't aware of a potential source of needed income that they or someone in their family may be eligible to get from the Social Security Administration (SSA). It's called Supplemental Security Income, or SSI. Even if someone is getting regular Social Security payments, they may be able to qualify for SSI.
