New SSA program aims to educate public about Social Security disability benefits

The United States’ Social Security Administration has initiated a program that is aimed at educating the public about the Social Security disability program and clearing up any existing confusion or common misconceptions regarding these important benefits. This new program is called “The Faces and Facts of Disability”.

Social Security disability benefits are available to Americans who have paid into Social Security through a tax on their earned wages. At present there are roughly 9 million Americans receiving these benefits who are suffering from mental impairments, physical disabilities, or sensory disabilities.

While these benefits provide important support for workers with disabilities, there are very strict rules that govern who is eligible for these benefits and how to apply, and as such, this new program hopes to clear up some common areas of confusion.

Additionally, enlisting the help of an experienced Social Security disability attorney can be invaluable if you are pursuing Social Security disability benefits. If you are filing a Social Security claim in Indiana, don’t hesitate to seek the assistance of the Indianapolis Social Security lawyers at the Hankey Law Firm by dialing (317) 634-8565.
