What Are Social Security Disability Benefits?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) oversees two disability benefit programs operated by the federal government.
For individuals who become disabled and can no longer work, the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program provides monthly financial benefits to assist workers. You must have worked for a certain number of years to be eligible for SSDI benefits. You must also meet the medical qualifications for a disability.
For individuals who have not been able to work because of a disability, the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides financial benefits to assist disabled individuals in providing for their needs. Individuals must meet income and asset requirements to qualify for SSI benefits, and have a disability that prevents them from working.
The requirements for SSDI and SSI can be complicated to understand. The process of applying for Social Security disability benefits can be frustrating and lengthy. Hiring a Bell County Social Security disability lawyer can help you through the process, from start to end.
How Can a Bell County Social Security Disability Lawyer Help Me?
A disability attorney understands the requirements for qualifying for Social Security disability benefits. The attorney also understands the application process and the documentation required to prove that you are disabled.
Making an error or mistake on your application or failing to provide the required information and documents could delay your disability claim. In some cases, your disability claim could be denied, and you have to start the process all over again.
A disability lawyer can complete and file your SSDI or SSI application for you, and guide you through the application process while providing legal advice about your rights. If your disability claim is denied, an attorney can file an appeal quickly. Deadlines for filing appeals are short. If you miss the deadline, you have to start the process over again.
