Winchester Social Security Disability Attorneys
Experienced lawyers helping you obtain Social Security disability benefits
At Stewart & Stewart, our Winchester Social Security disability attorneys can get you the help you need when you have become disabled. If you suffer an injury or a disease that prevents you from working, we can help you obtain government assistance from the Social Security Administration (SSA), the agency that determines if you are eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. We also understand that in some cases, your need for disability income may last for the rest of your life.
Social Security disability was designed as a safety net for disabled workers. We make sure it works as intended for your protection, not your frustration. Our depth of knowledge of these laws enables us to thoroughly prepare your claim, make sure all evidence is provided and guide you through the complex Social Security system. Under Title II — Disability Insurance Benefits — there are three categories of individuals who can qualify for benefits on the basis of disability:
- A disabled insured worker under 65 years of age
- A person disabled since childhood (before age 22) who is a dependent of a deceased insured parent or parent entitled to Title II disability or retirement benefits
- A disabled widow or widower age 50 – 60 if the deceased spouse was insured under Social Security
The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program was established to give disabled workers a source of income. Most of us have been paying into this government insurance program all of our working lives.
Handling your appeals
When you need these benefits, Social Security should be there for you. Unfortunately, people who become seriously injured often find that their valid claims are denied, leaving them unable to work and without an income.
Making sure the system works for you
Stewart & Stewart handles appeals for people who are denied SSDI and SSI benefits. SSI benefits are intended for people who have not paid enough money into Social Security to be entitled to disability benefits but can receive payments because they are disabled and are in financial need. We welcome the opportunity to make the system work for you.
