Social Security Disability Lawyers in Opelika, AL
Throughout your working life, you’ve contributed to Social Security because you knew it would be there when it was time for retirement. You’re likely aware that it’s also possible to qualify for those benefits if you become disabled before retirement age. Obtaining benefits from the Social Security Administration can be confusing and time-consuming. You may need someone to help you navigate through the process. If you have Social Security benefits questions, Brock & Stout will help you get answers.
SSDI Attorneys in Opelika
Brock & Stout’s Opelika law firm has dedicated Social Security Disability Attorneys ready to help you. Navigating the Social Security Administration can take skilled guidance. Our legal team has the experience and knowledge you need to get the benefits you deserve.
We know that Opelika, Alabama, is a great place to live and people who raised their families here often decide to stay through their “Golden Years”. We can help you if you’ve been forced to retire before your government-mandated age. You may be turned down if you apply for early Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The fact is that the law says you’re entitled to receive Social Security Disability payments if and when you need them.
Social Security is also mandated by law to be more than just retirement benefits. If you are injured, sick or suffer a physical or mental medical problem that prevents you from supporting yourself on your own, you may be entitled to Social Security benefits.
The Social Security Disability Attorneys of Brock & Stout are here to help you cut through the red tape and get the benefits you deserve.
SSI Attorneys in Opelika
Brock & Stout in Opelika also has attorneys who are experienced with Social Security Income. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) differs from disability or retirement benefits. It’s designed to help the aged, blind or disabled who have minimal or no income. Social Security Income provides cash to meet essential food, clothing and shelter expenses. Funding for this federal supplement program comes from general tax revenues, not Social Security taxes.
One of the Social Security Administration’s highest priorities is helping people with disabilities achieve personal independence. Several ways exist to receive assistance while you work on getting back into the workforce. Work-incentive employment supports disabled and blind SSI recipients by minimizing the risk of losing their SSI or Medicaid benefits. For example, instead of an absolute income limit, certain out-of-pocket expenses needed for services like co-pays, prescriptions medications, counseling or assistive technology may not count toward income limits on your SSI benefits.
As with any benefit program, there are regulations that must be followed. Brock & Stout Attorneys at Law can help guide you through each step so that you can get the help you need along the way as you return to full self-reliance.
