Social Security Attorneys at the Forefront of Our Field
Millions of Americans with disabilities rely on Social Security benefits for basic necessities. They need the supplemental income to support their families and pay their medical bills, and having those benefits denied is a serious hardship that throws entire lives into upheaval. Attempting to obtain or fighting to restore those benefits can be a complicated, frustrating and stressful process without the right Social Security attorney.
Fortunately, residents of Montgomery County, PA, Camden County, NJ, and the entire Philadelphia area can count on the experienced Social Security attorneys at Silver & Silver to fight on their behalf. Our Social Security lawyers have spent more than 40 years handling cases involving both types of Social Security Disability benefits. In fact, our firm was the first in our area to specialize in this type of law.
Our Social Security disability attorneys have successfully helped clients with:
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 disability benefits are for disabled people with limited income and few resources, and they are need-based. For SSI, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve worked in the past because SSI disability 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 or around Philadelphia, PA, and are looking to apply for Social Security disability benefits, have already begun the application process, or have recently been denied, contact the SSI lawyers at Silver & Silver today. Our team of Social Security attorneys possesses the in-depth knowledge and experience needed to tackle your claim head-on — and win!
Appealing Your Social Security Disability Denial with the Attorneys at 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. The appeal process can be long and time-consuming, but with the help of our Social Security lawyers, success can eventually be achieved. However, you only have a limited amount of time after you receive an initial denial to file an appeal. That is why it is so important to call one of our experienced Social Security attorneys right away if your claim has been denied.
Just because you were denied at first, this does not mean your case is over. At Silver & Silver, we understand the process, and you can trust our Social Security attorneys to:
- File your appeal
- Request relevant medical records
- Request a hearing before a Social Security Administrative Law Judge
If the judge denies your case, we can appeal your case to the Appeals Council. Finally, if the Appeals Council denies your case, we can then file a Federal appeal. You can rest assured that the Social Security attorneys at Silver & Silver will be with you every step of the way.
