Q: What are Permanent Partial Disability benefits?

A: The Social Security Administration not only provides benefits for temporary disabilities, they also have a special category for people who have suffered a permanent disability who may be able to return to work, but not work as effectively as they did before the injury. These permanent partial disabilities include loss of a finger or limb, loss of an eye, or loss of hearing in one or both ears.

The Social Security Administration estimates that of all cases in which temporary disability lasted more than one week, over half of these resulted in permanent partial disability. These victims not only qualified for Social Security disability benefits, but Worker’s Compensation as well.

However, the amount victims receive for permanent partial disability varies greatly. For instance, some states do not consider the worker’s pre-injury income amount when calculating benefits. In others, retirees can receive permanent disability benefits despite the fact that they do not plan to work in the future.

Depending what rules are applied and what state a person lives in, workers with similar injuries could receive significantly different amounts of benefit payments. To find out how much you could receive in Social Security benefits, call the experienced West Palm Beach Social Security disability lawyers at Fetterman & Associates today.
