Pennsylvania Social Security Disability Lawyers – SSDI & SSI
Philadelphia – Pennsylvania – New Jersey – Delaware – Maryland
Living with a disability can be a challenge. If you are completely disabled you need to be able to make ends meet. The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides benefits to people who are disabled, through the Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits system. Most common among the types of benefits the SSA awards are Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. These benefits pay set monthly amounts to qualified claimants. Unfortunately, even qualified applicants can sometimes fail to obtain the SSDI benefits they deserve due to mistakes during the complicated SSDI claims process. The smallest of mistakes can lead to a denial. As a result, it is best to have a Social Security disability lawyer by your side from day one, in order to increase your chances of success. But if you have already been denied, a Social Security disability attorney can file an appeal on your behalf.
SSD Practice Areas
If you are unable to work because of a physical or mental disability, you may be eligible to receive social security disability benefits. Whether you are completing your initial claim for benefits or you have been denied and are appealing the decision, we can help. Our Pennsylvania Social Security disability attorneys have experience assisting clients with disability claims that include:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Long-term Disability Benefits
Don’t give up your right to disability benefits just because your initial claim was rejected. Many social security disability filings are initially denied and must be appealed before benefits are granted. Our experienced Pennsylvania SSDI lawyers understand how important these benefits are for disabled individuals and their families and we are prepared to assist you with your filing or appeal by ensuring that all of the necessary information is included with your claim. We will diligently address all issues associated with your filing to ensure that your case is supported with the strongest evidence available.
Qualifications for SSDI in Pennsylvania and Other States
The Pennsylvania SSDI program is for those who have paid taxes into the Social Security system through working. In order to become eligible for SSDI benefits, you must fulfill the following criteria:
- Worked in jobs covered by Social Security
- Suffer from a medical condition which meets the SSA’s definition of a disability
The complex part of an SSDI application is effectively showing your disability. With the assistance of a SSDI attorney in Pennsylvania, you may be able to more effectively gather the necessary documentation and prove your disability to SSA than you would be able to do on your own. Our SSDI lawyers have experience helping disabled people get their Social Security disability insurance benefits.
