Social Security Disability
Protect Your Family
No one ever plans on becoming disabled. If a debilitating injury or illness renders you unable to work or live your best life, it is easy to feel like you are out of options. That is why the federal government offers Social Security Disability benefits to people who can no longer work to support themselves or their family members through no fault of their own.
The Social Security Administration uses a formula based on your average lifetime earnings and the total number of years you have worked to calculate the benefit amount. You can receive up to a maximum of approximately $1,500 per month, depending on your past earnings. If you have a family, you could receive additional benefits – up to 50 percent of your own monthly benefit amount.
At the Shaw Law Group, we help you and your family obtain the benefits you need in order to live your best possible life.
