Social Security Disability Benefits

When should you apply for Social Security Disability Benefits?

Coming to terms with the fact that you can no longer support yourself because of an illness or injury can be very difficult, making the question when you should apply for Social Security Disability Benefits next to impossible to answer. At the Law Offices of Nicholas J Del Pizzo it is a question we are asked often by clients living in Dundalk, White Marsh, and Baltimore City.

The easiest answer to that question is this: when you reach the point that your health problems have caused you to either stop working entirely or to cut back your hours to the point that you are earning less than $1,180.00 a month before taxes. This is an important barometer because once you have reached that point because of your health conditions that is the time you should apply.

Remember the definition of Social Security Disability Benefits is that you are not able to do any type of work at all on substantial gainful activity because of your health problems. Substainial gainful activity is measured in terms of being able to earn $1,180.00 a month before taxes, making that a very important metric to monitor.
