Social Security Disability

Butler Social Security Disability Attorneys

If you are unable to work because of a disability, there are a few things you should know about your social security rights. Social security disability insurance (SSDI) and supplemental security income (SSI) were created to help people who are unable to earn sufficient income due to a disability.

If you have been hurt on the job in Pennsylvania, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation and social security disability. If you have filed for social security disability and your claim was denied, there may be more you can do. Many people who are initially denied SSDI or SSI use their legal options to successfully obtain the benefits they need.

At Conlon Tarker, our Pennsylvania social security law advocates help people who have been denied disability benefits. Driven by our commitment to consistent performance, our partners and associates have the experience, recognition, and accolades that make our small firm one of the most respected practices in the region.

If you have questions about SSDI or SSI benefits, or you would like to consult with one of our attorneys about anything you are about to read, please contact our firm today at 724-602-4317. Time and time again, our clients tell us that, more than anything, they appreciate the fact that we took the time to walk them through each step of the legal process explain the aspects of their case as it was happening.

What to know about disability benefits

Remember, SSDI and SSI benefits have different eligibility requirements. SSDI benefits increase for workers based on lifetime taxable working income, whereas SSI income is available to older adults or people with disabilities whose income and assets fall below a certain amount. If you have been denied benefits after an initial application and would like to appeal, or if you are getting ready to file and would like to have an attorney guide you through the process of acquiring all necessary medical forms and paperwork, we can help. We can also help if you have a child with a disability and need assistance as you are getting ready to apply for benefits or beginning the appeals process. Appealing a SSDI or SSI ruling against you can be complicated and often takes months, sometimes even years, to complete. But Conlon Tarker will provide you with a durable perspective on your future and the future of your appeal. Perhaps our greatest asset is the relationships we have developed in our time as a law firm. We understand that communicating with medical experts and maintaining positive interactions with people within the legal system may be the difference in the outcome of your case.

Do you qualify for social security disability insurance?

Chances are that you qualify for SSDI if you have an eligible disability or terminal illness that prevents you from working or performing normal work-related responsibilities for a period of twelve months. It is also important that your work history shows that you have worked long enough to be eligible for SSDI benefits. Most SSDI benefits are paid to people who are disabled, whether from a job injury or other debilitating condition, and to their children and widowers, as well as adults who have been disabled since they were children.

Do you qualify for supplemental security income?

Supplemental security income is available for anyone who is disabled, but has not worked long enough to be eligible for SSDI. SSI benefits are not based on work history. SSI is meant to help people who are limited in their income and resources to help pay for necessary living expenses.
