Harrisburg Social Security Disability Attorneys

Due to financial obligations that need to be paid, some degree of physical and emotional stress always precedes an application for Social Security Disability insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims. Having paid into the Social Security system throughout your career, these are benefits that you are justly entitled to receive from the federal government if you or a dependent are disabled. Our Harrisburg lawyers want to make sure you receive the professional help that you deserve when filing for SSI or SSDI.

Common Questions Concerning Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) & Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Standard Questions Asked By People Applying for SSDI and SSI:

  • Do I even qualify for Social Security disability or Supplemental Security assistance?
  • Can I be approved for Social Security aid due to my disability?
  • Can I receive Supplemental Security Income in addition to Social Security Disability?
  • How do I proceed if my applications are denied for both SSI or SSDI?
  • If I am approved, how long do I have to wait to obtain my SSDI and SSI benefits?
  • How soon can I actually file my application for my federal benefit?
  • What constitutes a disability for me or for my child?

Attorneys at Handler Henning & Rosenberg LLC are available to answer these and other questions immediately, so you can move forward with your SSDI and SSI application process with confidence. Call us today for assistance! We offer a free consultation for our clients.

Is the Application for SSDI and SSI Benefits Complicated?

In recent years, the SSDI and SSI application processes have become more complex, to the point that even small mistakes in the required papers can lead to rapid denials. Appeals can take months, during which medical bills and other expenses will continue to mount. Working with an experienced Harrisburg Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income attorney from the beginning will help the process to run smoothly and quickly. You can speak to one of our lawyers today to explore your benefit options and to have your specific concerns addressed.

Will I Really Benefit from an Attorney’s Help?

In 2016, 60% of Social Security Disability insurance benefit applications were denied. Of those, however, 66% are then granted when the case is appealed in a legal proceeding. Regardless of where you are in the Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income application process, an experienced lawyer can help you to recoup the full monetary assistance the program is designed to deliver.
