Alabama Disability Attorneys HUNTSVILLE Can I get Temporary Disability

Alabama Disability Attorneys HUNTSVILLE Can I get Temporary Disability: The attorneys at Powell and Denny both have over 20 years of experience handling Social Security Disability and SSI cases, and for as long as we have been handling disability claims, we have been asked whether one can qualify for temporary disability through the Social Security Administration.

The short answer is no. Congress had not provided any avenue in which a person may qualify for temporary disability benefits. According to the law, either a person is disabled or they are not; however, that is not to say that one cannot go through a period of time (at least 12 months by law) where they were unable to work due to some problem or condition, but later return to work once they improve. This occurs quite often, and when it does happen, we call this a closed period. This means that for a certain period of time (again, the time must have been for at least 12 months), the claimant was unable to work, and although their circumstances happily changed and they were able to return to work-they are still entitled to disability benefits for the time period they were unable to work.

So, if you were disabled for a period of time lasting at least 12 months and later returned to work, you might still be entitled to disability benefits for the period of time you were unable to perform substantial gainful activity.

If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits in Huntsville Alabama, but you believe that you are entitled to a closed period, don't give up. Call Powell and Denny today.
