The Social Security Disability attorneys at Carlson Meissner are among the most experienced in Social Security Disability law and disability insurance claim cases. In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits,​ you must have paid or earned a quota of credits into the system. For example, if you were a worker prior to 2006, you must have paid into the system a minimum sum of $96,000 to qualify for benefits. Every year that you work, money from your paycheck goes into the system and is applied to that amount. If you are injured, you can then collect from that sum of money.
