Labor First to introduce Social Security Disability Program

Posted:August 7, 2015

At Labor First we understand that hard labor can take a physical toll on Union workers causing them to retire before the ideal age of 65 due to health issues. If this applies to you or someone you know, there is good news. Union workers over the age of 45 who have been retired less than 5 years and suffer from physical and/or mental conditions may be eligible for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) in addition to their pension.  SSDI can result in an additional $1,500 to $2,300 per month, plus a lump sum check with absolutely no effect on your union pension or Social Security Retirement Benefits. In addition, being eligible for SSDI could also mean you are eligible for Medicare Benefits. Early Medicare Benefits will allow more affordable healthcare for you and reduce claim costs for your Union.

How we can help…

Effective immediately Labor First will be offering free Social Security Disability consultations with our Retiree Advocates. Labor First Advocates are extremely knowledgeable and make enrolling into the SSDI program an easy process. We encourage you to give us a call if you suffer from any physical or mental ailment big or small including arthritis, high blood pressure, depression, back pain, or diabetes. With more than half of the men and one-third of the women leaving the workforce before the early-retirement age of 62, we are excited to provide this group with the opportunity to enhance their income and benefits.
