I had a girlfriend a few years ago and it didn't work out, but I wonder about the future if I meet someone again.
It is expected that Workers Compensation, Disability Income insurance, and other means will support the disabled worker during his first five months of disability.
Therefore, the date of entitlement to disability is subject to a waiting period.
Because the date of your initial filing is used to determine your date of entitlement to disability, it is in your best interest to file for Social Security Disability benefits as soon as you think you might be disabled.
We fall in love and want to make a commitment to the person that we love and become a family. Yet, too many people with disabilities must choose between getting married and continuing to receive the benefits they need to live from federal programs such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.
People with disabilities on Medicaid who get married and cannot stay on Medicaid do save the Medicaid program some money, but they cost other government programs more.
The Medicaid Marriage Penalty is misdirected and wrong because it prevents many people with disabilities from getting married or even staying married.
There is no penalty for failing to file after you’ve stated your intent, and your date of entitlement for disability benefits is based on the date on which you originally made your intent to file officially known.
When you are approved for Social Security Disability Benefits, you will generally be awarded back pay dating back to your date of entitlement to disability.
If you are approved for Social Security Disability Benefits, your date of entitlement to disability will be dependent on the date you made the Social Security Administration aware of your intent to file for Social Security Disability.
In the case of SSI, which is a need-based program, your date of entitlement to disability (should you qualify) is usually the date on which you made your intent to file known.
Too many have to struggle with this choice because of "marriage penalties." SSI is a needs-based federal program that helps people with disabilities (as well as people who are elderly) who have little or no income.
