Social security law involves the intricacies of the American public benefits system that provides social security income. Social security is funded by taxes you pay when you are working. Once you stop working and meet the eligibility requirements, you receive monthly benefits. This occurs when you retire, have a recognized social security disability, or are the surviving spouse or child of a person entitled to social security. There are many social security laws and policies to determine eligibility, benefit amounts, and benefit duration. A social security lawyer can help if you are unfairly denied social security benefits, or if you feel the amount you receive is not enough.
