Disability Attorney John Hogan

 

 

Dave,

I have been meaning to write this for a while, as I am seeing a number of retired players who are not eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits because they let their Social Security “quarters of coverage” lapse.  To be entitled to SSDI benefits, a worker need to have what Social Security calls “currently insured status” as of the time that he became disabled.  For most people who have worked and paid into Social Security for a number of years, this insured status will often continue for several years after they stop working.  However, like insurance you might have for your car or home, you need to “keep the premiums paid”.  With Social Security, it is done through FICA taxes taken out of paychecks, or taken from self-employment income.

I have seen a number of retired players go into “business” after leaving the NFL, and despite being successful, their accountants – in an effort to minimize or eliminate their taxes – expense most profit away.  It is great to save on taxes, but they often are not paying into Social Security anymore.  Other guys may get appearance fees, etc. that they might not be paying Social Security taxes on.
