Social Security Claims Attorneys in Maryland

Offering Representation in Virginia & Washington DC

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is a federal agency that oversees various retirement and disability insurance plans for American workers who pay into the system through payroll deduction or direct payments over the course of their working lives. If an injured worker becomes disabled, he or she is generally able to apply for disability benefits until reaching retirement age.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Is Not a Welfare Program

When you apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you are essentially asking the federal government to make good on the years of payments you have made into the disability system. If you have paid taxes on your income on a relatively consistent basis, then it is likely that you are eligible for this federally mandated disability insurance.

The Disability Determination Services (DDS) branch of the SSA is the decision-making body that determines whether an applicant has a qualifying disability for SSDI benefits. In a higher percentage of cases, however, the DDS denies the application. Hiring an experienced lawyer is a proven strategy for increasing your chances of getting your claim approved.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

SSI is a federal benefits program set up to provide a subsistence income for people who have not been able to work and contribute to the SSDI program. In many cases, recipients of SSI benefits must demonstrate that a mental, emotional, or physical disability prevents them from participating in the workforce. There are also income requirements that must be addressed. If you are without assets and suffer from disabilities that prevent you from working, Supplemental Security Income may be the appropriate benefit for you to pursue.
