This article makes a good point about how complicated financial planning can be for disability beneficiaries and their families. It is a worthwhile read. One interesting thing I took note of: even though disability benefits convert to retirement benefits at full retirement age, a person can still delay taking retirement benefits until age 70, This can result in a very substantial increase in benefits for the disabled worker and his or her spouse. This is the sort of financial decision that warrants expert advice from an accountant or financial planner. If you are disabled and approaching full retirement age, it makes sense to explore this issue in detail.
About the Author
Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
