While we do our best to prepare for the unexpected, accidents and illness can strike at anytime. That’s why it’s important to be aware of what options are available to offer you assistance in the event you become disabled due to a mishap or disease.
Social Security Disability Benefits
These payments are made available to Americans who are suffering from a long-term or terminal condition. The Social Security Disability attorneys with Ponce Law explain that there are complex regulations that can make it slow and difficult to be approved for the program. Luckily, the Social Security Administration has another type of resource that may be easier for a disabled citizen to receive.
Supplemental Security Income
The Social Security Administration (SSA) allows anyone who is 65 years of age or younger, blind, or disabled to qualify for Supplemental Security Income. Recipients must also have limited resources and income.
The processes to receive either of these benefits can be arduous and may require you to seek legal assistance with your claim. In fact, SSA reports show an estimated 60 percent of initial Social Security Disability claims are denied.
At Ponce Law, we’re here to help if you’re disabled and in need of assistance. We can answer any questions you may have regarding your case and can assist you with the paperwork that’s necessary for filing. To speak with a member of our legal team, give us a call at 615-244-4321.
