Questions come up all the time about the eligibility requirements for Social Security and Medicaid benefits. The link below takes you to a Social Security Administration (SSA) webpage that lays out, in surprisingly clear terms, who is and who is not eligible. I thought it might be a handy reference to keep yourself up to date on all the latest requirements.
Issues surrounding Social Security benefits must be resolved before a personal injury case settles. Be sure to request a Benefit Summary Page from the SSA for your client. It will show what type of government benefits (if any) the client is receiving and the amount of benefits the client has received in the past. Allow two to four weeks to receive a response.
Please give me a call if you have any questions.
