Typically when people think of Social Security benefits they think of retirement benefits. However, Social Security also provides a security blanket for people who are injured and unable to work. At Bromberg Rosenthal LLC, in Rockville, we have significant experience helping people throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. obtain Social Security Disability benefits.
Understanding Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is designed to provide income to people who are injured and have been unable to work for more than twelve months. In addition to handling cases involving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), we also represent people seeking Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI provides income to people who are disabled and unable to work, but have not paid into the Social Security trust fund.
Why Do I Need a Social Security Disability Lawyer?
Unfortunately, most people who apply or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. are denied. Our firm has more than thirty years of experience helping injured people obtain the Social Security disability benefits they have earned. We routinely assist people with initial application for Social Security Disability benefits as well as people who have been previously denied.
Benefits for You and Your Family Members
In addition to the disabled individual, certain family members may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits based on the disabled worker's earnings record. Some of the family members who may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits include:
- Your unmarried children under age 18, or under age 19 if attending high school full-time
- Your unmarried child 18 years of age or older, when that child was disabled before reaching age 22
- Your spouse age 62 or older
- Your spouse of any age who is caring for a child of yours under age 16, or who is disabled and also receiving disability checks
Additionally, people who qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) become eligible for Medicare, including Part A (hospital benefits) and Part B (medical benefits) once they have received SSDI benefits for twenty-four months.
