Vance Jennings, Board-Certified Disability Benefits Specialist Attorney at Raleigh's Brent Adams & Associates, obtained $108,507.00 in back benefits for a Social Security disability client.
The award included past-due benefits. In addition to these past-due benefits, the client will receive his full Social Security disability benefits monthly for so long as he is disabled.
At Brent Adams and Associates we strive to obtain benefits for our clients back to the earliest possible date. In the case of this client, Mr. Jennings was able to recover past-due benefits dating back to November 1986.
The amount a disabled person can collect for their Social Security disability benefits depends to a large extent on the amount of earnings realized by the claimant. The more money a person earns and pays into the Social Security system through mandatory Social Security payments, the more that person will receive in the event they become disabled.
In the case of this particular client, unfortunately, his earnings were low during his working years. His monthly benefits were $474.00 at the time Mr. Jennings won his case.
As with all Social Security disability claims, benefits increase with cost of living adjustments. When this client first became disabled and entitled to Social Security benefits, in November 1986 his monthly benefits were much lower than $474.00. Nevertheless, this client received a very nice check for his back benefits all the way back to 1986. Even though his monthly benefits were low, the total he received was substantial: $108,507.00.
At Brent Adams and Associates, we take great care and work hard to be sure that our clients receive full Social Security benefits as far back in time as possible. It is difficult to receive substantial back benefits. However, with Mr. Jennings' help, this client was able to receive a significant sum of money, which will give him and his family a higher standard of living.
