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 disabled 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).

How long do you have to work to qualify for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income?
Social Security Disability Benefits To qualify for Social Security disability benefits it's based upon the number of credits you have earned when you become disabled, currently you need 30 credits of work and 20 of these credits had to be earned in the last 10 years. The law governing benefit amo…unts change, Congress makes changes in the law and can do so at any time. . Social Security Disability - if you become disabled before full retirement age, you can receive disability benefits after six months if you have. 1) enough credits from earnings (depending on your age, you must have earned six to 20 of your credits in the three to 10 years before you become disabled); and. 2) a physical or mental impairment that's expected to prevent you from doing "substantial" work for a year or more or result in death. Supplemental Security Income . Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes):. It is designed to help aged, blind, and disabled people, who have little or no income; and It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.. This depends on how many residents live within your house. It also depends if more than one person and/or what each makes in a combination. Your total Gross payment, not net. is decided by the government on their decision. But, you might also wonder of the reason you need SSI , to help you make it way of thinking of how you would use it.. Correction: The wait time for Social Security is five months, not six. Disability credits are determined by the 20-40 rule. Twenty credits out of the most recent 40 credits before you claim disability.. Call 1-800-772-1213 or visit www.socialsecurity.gov for answers.

United States In the United States, the Social Security Administration is responsible for federal disability benefits as well as retirement and survivors' benefits, Supplemental Security Income, and several other related social programs. There are 2 federal programs under the U.S. Social Secur…ity 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.

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, having been diagnosed with lupus during the 90's. After her diagnosis, she was unable to continue working as a teacher's aide (out…door 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. (MORE)

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 benefits won't consider it.
Typically, a disabled worker may expect to receive $1,067 in disability payments every month. However, if the claimant has a spouse and a child, the average monthly social security benefits may increase up to $1,813. Monthly SSI benefits are lower and single beneficiaries may receive $674 monthly bu…t for couples, the payment may increase to $1,011. In 2010, the maximum individual benefit is $2,346 , which assumes 35 working years paying the maximum FICA contribution. A disabled person with a family can receive a maximum family benefit for a qualifying spouse and children of $4,222.80. These numbers are unrealistic for most people, however. In 2010, the average disability benefit is $1,065.90 . The average payment for qualifying minor dependents is $317.10 each, terminating the month before the child turns 18 (or 19 if still in high school). Under certain circumstances, the spouse of a disabled individual may also collect a small monthly stipend, averaging about $286.70 per month. The family maximum is 150-180% of the disabled worker's benefit. (MORE)

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 only to disabled people who are below full retirement age. If you're asking whether you can receive both Social Security ret…irement 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. (MORE)

No, Social Security benefits continue unless you reenter the workforce and engage in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), which translates to earning more than an average of $1,000 per month for most disabilities or $1,640 per month for blindness. If you remain unemployed or employed below the lev…el of SGA, disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits when you reach full retirement age (for people born before 1943, age 65; for people born between 1943 and 1954, age 66).

The physical Disability insurance contract provided by the insurance company will have all of the information needed to determine whether they will want their money back if a claimant is eligible for Social-Security (SS) benefits. . If you have Disability insurance under a group policy (through wor…k), there is a good chance that they will want a refund for benefits paid on any month that you were eligible and receive SS benefits. This will often be described very clearly in the contract. Group contracts will often offset your benefits, dollar-for-dollar (100%) with an benefits received from SS and family SS. In order to be sure, simply reference the contract you have. . With individual Disability coverage you should know if any of your benefits will offset with SS benefits. Benefits are classified as "Base benefits", which do not offset or "Social Insurance benefits" which is an optional rider you can add to your coverage and will offset dollar-for-dollar with SS benefits. This information will be found in your original contract. In order to know for sure, you should reference the contract. . There are many different names for the Social insurance rider. Every company has their own variation, but the conditions are similar. (MORE)
Yes you can attempt to go back to work without losing your benefits. The Social Security Disability department has special rules that help you keep your cash benefits and Medicare while you test your ability to work. These rules are called "work incentives" or "employment support" programs. The r…esources available can help with rehabilitation, finding an employer and even assist you in receiving benefits again immediately if you have to stop working again. There is a full section of the SS website devoted to this specifically, which I have added as a related link. If you have been on disability for more than 24 months, you can earn an average of $1,000 per month ($1,640 if legally blind) without the Social Security Administration considering the work "substantial gainful employment" (SGA) and triggering a continuing disability review (CDR). If you earn more than $720 per month, the income counts toward your nine-month trial work period. If you have been on disability for 24 months or less, any work attempt may trigger a CDR, requiring you to demonstrate your disability still prevents you from engaging in full-time work. (MORE)
The state you live in will not impact your eligibility to receive Disability benefits from a Long-Term disability policy. Therefore, Yes you are able to collect Long-Term Disability (LTD) benefits while receiving Social Security (SS) benefits. To be more specific though, whether or not you actually… receive benefits from your LTD policy will have everything to do with the wording in the contract. If you have group coverage through work, then it is likely that any benefits you receive from Social Security will offset the benefits payable through your LTD plan dollar-for-dollar. In this situation, even though you are able to receive LTD from your company policy, you may not actually receive any from it if you are receiving Social Security benefits equivalent or higher than the monthly benefit it provides. The same consequences apply for Federal Government employees as through the FERS program. Additionally, if you own an individual policy that has Social Insurance offset benefits, then theses benefits will also be offset dollar-for-dollar. If you own an individual LTD policy that does not have Social Insurance benefits than you would be able to collect on Social Security benefits and 100% of the benefits provided through your LTD policy. This is actually one of the main reasons why individual LTD coverage is much better than group coverage. (MORE)
Because the SSA is very stringent about allowing Social Security Disability benefits, you are most likely to not qualify for unemployment benefits because you have to be able to work, which the SSA had to admit you couldn't.

The SSB would ONLY be free of federal income tax when you do NOT have any other worldwide income to be reported on your 1040 income tax return. If you received Social Security benefits in 2009, you need to know whether or not these benefits are taxable. Here are seven facts the Internal Revenue Se…rvice wants you to know about Social Security benefits so you can determine whether or not they are taxable to you. How much -- if any -- of your Social Security benefits are taxable depends on your total income and marital status. Generally, if Social Security benefits were your only income for 2009, your benefits are not taxable and you probably do not need to file a federal income tax return. If you received income from other sources, your benefits will not be taxed unless your modified adjusted gross income is more than the base amount for your filing status. Your taxable benefits and modified adjusted gross income are figured on a worksheet in the Form 1040A or Form 1040 Instruction booklet. You can do the following quick computation to determine whether some of your benefits may be taxable: *.First, add one-half of the total Social Security benefits you received to all your other income, including any tax exempt interest and other exclusions from income. *.Then, compare this total to the base amount for your filing status, if the total is more than your base amount, then some of your benefits may be taxable. From 50% to 85% of your SSB can become taxable income on your 1040 income tax return and would be added to all of your other gross income and taxed at your marginal tax rate. For additional information on the taxability of Social Security benefits, Go to the IRS.gov web site and use the search box for IRS Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits.

Potentially. Depends on the individual circumstances. Asperger syndrome often means we give huge attention to detail and often are very careful about getting things right. Often we can concentrate for huge amounts of time on something we find of interest. We tend to be honest and loyal. All of those… things can be useful traits.

For this purpose you will have to apply through the Social Security Administration process. Make sure that you specify that you seek disability, rather than retirement, benefits. You may be able to start the process by going to the SSA gov website SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS ONLINE. Alternatively, yo…u can call the Social Security Office closest to you and schedule an initial appointment. It is probably more efficient to complete the forms online, as they are rather extensive. Before you begin, you should assemble information pertaining to your physicians, past employers, and various other categories of material that is enumerated on the website. If you have it at hand before you start the online process, the going will be easier. Therefore, review the website before you plan to complete the application so you can gather the needed information. Once you have made the online submission, Social Security will determine if you have the requisite "credits" or "quarters" paid into the system to qualify for benefits. If you do not, the rest of the process is moot; if you do, it will move forward. Among other things, Social Security will obtain medical records from treating physicians, counselors, hospitals, and others from whom you obtained treatment. This may take some time depending upon the providers' responsiveness. There will likely be a lengthy telephone interview with a caseworker, and in the case of a claimed mental disability, there will likely will also be a psychological examination by an independent practitioner to help determine the issue of disability. Keep in mind that the main determinant to being awarded SSDI is a finding of inability to work at all in any area for which you are suited by knowledge, training, or experience. Therefore, the medical/psychological/employment records will have to support that contention. Unsupported allegations that you make will not, in and of themselves, be enough. If you are awarded SSDI, Social Security may conduct periodic reviews of your condition to determine if you continue to meet the requirements of entitlement. (MORE)
The Social Security disability insurance program (sometimes referred to as SSDI) pays benefits to you and certain family members if you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. You can go to the SSA gov website and find some information about this matter.

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. (MORE)
