What Benefits Are Available?

When a disability prevents you from working, it is crucial that you understand government programs that can help you.

From our offices in Fort Wayne, the attorneys at Golden Law, PC, provide exceptional client service to individuals seeking to obtain disability benefits. If you have questions regarding your eligibility or your initial application has been denied, it is crucial that you act quickly. Don't give up. Most claims are initially denied. An attorney can examine your paperwork and provide answers regarding your best course of action.

  • SSD: Social Security Disability, sometimes called Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), is a government program designed to help Americans avoid financial hardship. Many times, an individual will be prevented from working due to a disability. If you have a qualifying disability, you must also have a work history that shows you have worked enough years to be eligible for benefits.
  • SSI: Supplemental Security Income is another government program tied to disability. It is a financial assistance program, however, that is not tied to work history. It is primarily meant to help people with limited income.

What If My SSD Claim Is Denied?

Most estimates note that nearly two-thirds of SSD claims are denied at the initial stage. Fortunately, there is an appeals process by which individuals can fight a denial. With the help of a skilled Indiana lawyer, you might be able to reverse your denial and receive government benefits designed to help you.
