Social Security Disability Attorneys in Landover
Helping Disabled Americans Get the Benefits They Deserve
Social Security disability benefits are essential to many Americans who are unable to work while recovering from or living with a disability. These monthly payments and Medicare benefits allow disabled individuals to maintain stability when they cannot earn a living.
There are two programs that offer disability benefits: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Both programs are administered by the Social Security Administration.
If you believe you may be eligible under one of these programs, Ashcraft & Gerel can help you apply for benefits. Our Social Security disability attorneys in Landover are extremely familiar with these programs and can help you ensure that you get the support you need and deserve.
How to Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits
Social Security Disability Insurance is available to individuals under the age of 65 who have been employed in a role where they pay Social Security taxes for the requisite number of years. SSDI Supplemental Security Income is available to disabled, low-income adults and children who do not qualify for SSDI. In order to be eligible, you must not have more than $2,000 in assets (or $3,000 for couples).
Though the programs are quite different, they both have similar medical requirements and they both assess qualifying disabilities using the same process. A qualifying disability must be a severe injury that prevents you from performing work activities. Disabilities must last at least one year or result in death.
Get the Benefits You Deserve
Obtaining benefits under the SSDI and SSI programs can be difficult. Many people are initially denied upon their first application. That is why it is important to work with an attorney who understands the system and who can ensure that your application is as strong as possible.
