Tewksbury, Massachusetts Social Security Disability Lawyers
Social Security Disability is a lifeline for those who are unable to work because of a Disability. This is especially true for those in Tewksbury. Whether you suffered a recent injury that keeps you from work or you have been suffering in silence for many years, SSD benefits might be the answer. The Federal program makes sure that disabled adults and children have the financial resources available to pay rent and put groceries on the table. At Marcotte Law Firm, our Disability Lawyers have the experience necessary to ensure that your application for benefits is approved. We use our hands-on approach to build your case and make sure the Social Security Administration has all it needs to approve your claim.SSDI vs. SSI
There are actually two separate disability programs, each of which have to be applied for separately. On the one hand, Social Security Disability Insurance (“SSDI”) is an insurance program for those who have worked and earned enough “credits.” The amount of credits you need and how much you will receive depends on your work history and how much you have paid into the system over your career.
On the other hand, Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) is a needs-based program for those who are disabled and don’t have enough money to pay for basic necessities. The difference with this program is that you don’t need to have a work history. Instead, you need to meet a means test that limits the amount of assets you have. Another difference is that the monthly payment is usually much lower than SSDI.Local Tewksbury Social Security Disability Attorneys
