Study Finds Link Between Unemployment and Social Security Disability

A new study by the White House Council of Economic Advisors has found a strong link between expiring unemployment benefits and persons seeking Social Security Disability. According to the director of the Council of Economic Advisors, Dr. Alan Krueger, persons with less than $5,000.00 in total savings, have a far greater likelihood of applying for Social Security Disability, after unemployment compensation benefits expire. In fact, 10% of American adults between the ages of 50 and 65, with less than $5,000.00 of assets, do apply for Social Security Disability after unemployment compensation benefits expire.

According to Social Security Disability Attorney and Lawyer, Randy Zeldin, Esq., of Boca Raton, most Social Security Judges in South Florida will deny Social Security Disability benefits during any period when unemployment compensation has been received. “This is not a hard and fast rule”, according to Social Security Disability Attorney and Lawyer, Randy Zeldin, Esq.. but a strong factor considered by the local Social Security Disability Judges. Any person seeking Social Security Disability benefits, who is receiving or has recently received unemployment compensation benefits, will benefit from a free consultation with Social Security Disability Attorney and Lawyer Randy Zeldin, Esq., serving individuals in Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, Florida
