Social Security Administration
The Social Security Administration, better known as the SSA, is the government entity responsible for the distribution of Social Security funds. It is an independent federal agency based in Woodlawn Maryland, however there are offices scattered all over the country. Claims for Social Security Disability assistance are sent to the SSA for review. The majority of initial claims are denied. The best way to continuously fight for the Social Security benefits that you need is to hire an attorney to help you file and appeal.
If you are unable to work due to a disabling injury or illness, we can offer assistance as you seek SSDI benefits. Contact the Indianapolis Social Security Disability lawyers at the Hankey Law Office, at (317) 634-8565 to speak with an experienced attorney about the process.
Social Security Assistance
The SSA will consider how long the disability is likely to prevent an individual from working and to what extent it is likely to inhibit a worker’s physical or mental capacities. In order to qualify, the disability must be expected to last longer than one year. There are two types of assistance available:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
The SSA will review these claims. The process can be long, and it can be frustrating to have your rightful claim denied, but this is frequently the case. Fortunately, these decisions can be appealed. It is essential to file for the right kind of assistance the first time, or the claim will take even longer to go through.
Statistics show the best way to start getting your social security checks is to hire representation. Contact the Indianapolis Social Security Disability lawyers at the Hankey Law Office by calling (317) 634-8565 for a free consultation.
