Phoenix Long-Term Disability Attorneys

Explaining How Social Security Affects Your Other Disability Benefits

If you are unable to work full-time due to a disabling medical condition, you may be eligible for a number of different types of government and private benefits, including Social Security disability, workers' compensation and long-term disability benefits.

At The Slepian Law Office, our primary focus is on helping clients pursue Social Security disability claims. However, we can also advise you on the relationship between these different types of benefits so you can pursue the maximum benefits you are entitled to receive.

Helping You Understand the Different Types of Benefits Available

In the process of helping you apply for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income benefits, our experienced lawyers can evaluate your personal situation and identify whether you may also be eligible for one or both of the following types of benefits:

  • Long-term disability: If you or your employer has purchased a private long-term disability insurance policy, you may be eligible for disability benefits under that policy.
  • Workers' compensation: If you have become disabled as a result of an injury you suffered on the job, you may be eligible for disability benefits through workers' compensation.

The relationships between these different types of benefits can be complex, and they are not all based on the same definition of what it means to be disabled. If necessary, our attorneys may refer you to another firm to pursue your workers' compensation or long-term disability claim.
