Need Social Security Disability Benefits? We’re with You Every Step of the Way
The experienced Social Security attorneys at Silver & Silver can help you with both types of Social Security Disability benefits.
Social Security Disability (SSD): These benefits are typically paid to disabled people who have worked in the past and, therefore, have paid Social Security taxes from their paychecks. Essentially, Social Security disability is an insurance program that people become eligible for after working 5 of the last 10 years immediately prior to the onset of their disabling condition.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI): On the other hand, SSI benefits are for disabled people with limited income, few resources, and is need-based. For SSI, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve worked in the past because benefits are paid out according to one’s financial needs. Some people can qualify for both programs, some for neither, and some for one or the other.
If you live in Montgomery County, Philadelphia, PA, or Camden, NJ, and are looking to apply for Social Security disability benefits, have already begun the application process, or have recently been denied, contact the lawyers at Silver & Silver today. Our skilled team of Social Security lawyers possesses the in-depth knowledge and experience needed to tackle your claim head-on.
Appealing Your Social Security Disability Denial with Silver & Silver
If your initial claim has been denied, don’t give up. We know how frustrating it can be when you cannot work and your claim for disability has been denied.
