Does a person with Asperger's Syndrome qualify for social security disability benefits?
that is likely a yes since there are usually more limited to the types of work they can do, mostly social and physical. Plus the developmental delays in autism can make it difficult for holding a job.

No. The Social Security Administration only pays disability benefits if they determine you have a qualifying condition, are completely disabled, and are expected to remain dis…abled for at least one year. If you are capable of working or engaging in "substantial gainful activity" (SGA) regardless of whether you receive income for your efforts, you will not be approved for SSDI benefits. In addition, you -- or, under certain circumstances, a parent or spouse -- have to have made sufficient quarterly contributions to the Social Security fund before you become eligible to Social Security benefits. Some government programs, such as those for disabled military veterans, may pay a monthly stipend if you are partially disabled or have a non-disabling condition that has been linked to your military service (for example, Vietnam Veterans who have diabetes and were potentially exposed to Agent Orange automatically qualify for partial disability).
If you collect private disability then qualify for social security disability can you collect them both My private plan says nothing about social security benefits?
Yes you can. However if your collecting disability benefits from a LTD then they will most likely kick you off once you start receiving your SSDI benefits. However, if you try…ing to get on SSI, which is income based, you wont be able to collect both.
United States In the United States, the Social Security Administration is responsible for federal disability benefits as well as retirement and survivors' benefits, Supplem…ental Security Income, and several other related social programs. There are 2 federal programs under the U.S. Social Security Administration that are designed to provide disability benefits to injured/disabled workers or individuals with little income and few resources. The first is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the second is the Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Persons with disabilities may apply to either depending on their qualifications, so as to receive monthly financial assistance to help make ends meet while they are unable to work for a living or if they totally have no means of earning. United Kingdom The department of health and social security is now called the department for work and pensions and whatever benefits you receive are paid from one of their offices albeit that income support and job seekers and most other benefits are granted and sent out from offices here in England your disability living allowance comes from Belfast from the dla office based there and although your DLA is indeed a state benefit it is not what you would call social security benefits which are there for you to live on and DLA is not for you to live on but there for your quality of life and therefore does not come under the same section in the benefits office.
Disability benefits are through the Social Security Administration. You can contact their local office or visit their website.
I am not a professional answering this question, only someone with a family member who had this same issue. My daughter has been collecting disability for several years, havin…g been diagnosed with lupus during the 90's. After her diagnosis, she was unable to continue working as a teacher's aide (outdoor work with students) as the prolonged exposure to the sun aggravates lupus. She had no problem getting on disability at that time & has been collecting it ever since from Prudential Ins. which provided disability coverage for teachers & aides (premium for same was taken out of her paycheck when she was working). It was compounded by the fact that she also had rheumatoid arthritis , diagnosed shortly after the lupus diagnosis & possibly even caused & precipitated by the lupus. And she did not even have to file several times as a lot of people have to do now. She has since acquired ever more medical issues & had many Medicaid-paid surgeries, costly procedures, & voluminous medications, which a person with advanced lupus & R.A. should possibly expect to incur. (i.e., it starts usually with lesions on the scalp, then progresses to bones & joints, neck problems, spine, etc.) Some of the surgeries involved actual removal of bones in her hands, arms, & ribs infected with cysts and/or tumors from the rapidly-progressing R.A. I don't know where you would apply for disability now, but if you get rejected after applying, know that it may eventually disable you, so you'll want to be persistent by re-applying if at first rejected. Social Security does recognize lupus as a disability. It is best to retain a lawyer. First, you have to prove that you are serologically positive for lupus (variety of lab tests) and then you have to prove disability under the subsection of the code for each part of the body that is affected. Lupus does not cause rheumatoid arthritis. They are both autoimmune diseases and can co-exist.
It's not a black and white condition so neither is the disability. Depending on your diagnosis your doctor may or may not recommend that you can't work otherwise disability be…nefits won't consider it.
Yes. I get S.S.D.I.
There is no "list" of disabling conditions that qualify a person for Social Security benefits. And disabling conditions can vary from person to person, although it is true tha…t mental disability is as legitimate as physical disability. The key to eligibility is determining whether an applicant has "qualifying earnings," paycheck withholding that has been paid into the Social Security fund.
When people refer to "Social Security," they general mean retirement benefits. SSDI is Social Security Disability Insurance, which is paid from the same fund, but available on…ly to disabled people who are below full retirement age. If you're asking whether you can receive both Social Security retirement and Social Security disability benefits, the answer is no. If you meet SSA guidelines for disability, you receive SSDI until you become ineligible or reach retirement age, whichever occurs first. If you remain on SSDI until retirement, your Social Security benefits automatically convert from disability to retirement. You can't receive both at the same time. If you're asking whether you can receive private disability insurance payments after you begin receiving Social Security disability or retirement benefits, that depends on the policy. Consult with your insurance agent or employer for more information.
Does a person with a blind eye qualify for social security
No, they are protected from creditor judgments under federalstatutes. However, all Social Security benefits awarded to a non custodialparent are subject to garnishment for ch…ild support obligations.
In 2010, People on disability can earn up to $1,000 per month ($12,000 per year) for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month ($19,680 per year) if legally blind. Earning more… than these limits would be considered engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), would trigger a continuing disability review, and likely result in termination of the person's disability status with Social Security. If you decide to return to work, the SSA allows nine non-consecutive months where earned income is unlimited; however, any month a disabled person earns more than $720.00 is counted toward the nine-month trial work period. Social Security disability benefits may be temporarily reduced if the person is also receiving Worker's Compensation or other public disability payments. The total amount of all sources of government disability income, including SSDI, cannot exceed 80% of the worker's average current earnings at the time of disability. SSDI benefits are based on the amount of money a worker paid in FICA (insurance) taxes during his or her working years, and is not means-tested. The Social Security Administration only cares about earned income as a measure of work performance. There is no limit on passive income a disabled person can receive from other sources, such as pension, annuities, capital gains, dividends, gifts, etc. There is also no limit to the amount of income other family or household members may earn. None of this money affects your SSDI disability benefits. Different rules apply for people who are on SSI (Supplemental Security Income, a form of welfare for the disabled) or a combination of SSDI and SSI, which is means-tested. Only the SSI portion of the person's income may change; the SSDI payments are affected exactly as detailed above.
There are a few requirements for qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance. The first, you must be insured. That generally means you must have worked and paid into t…he program (payroll taxes) for five of the last 10 years. You must also have been disabled before reaching full-retirement age (65-67). Your full retirement age varies depending on your birth date. Finally, you must meet Social Security's definition of disability.
