Carlisle Social Security Disability Information

Do You Need Help With Social Security Disability?

Social security disability benefits are meant to help people who are unable to work due to a long-term disability. Unfortunately, proving your disability and eligibility for assistance can be complicated. It is best to contact a skilled Carlisle social security disability lawyer to help you with this process.

Different Types of Social Security Disability Claims

There are several options for disabled people to receive assistance from the Social Security Administration. Individuals who have worked paid into the Social Security system may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). These claims are often denied if not done properly.

There is also a federal income supplement program called SSI which is based on financial need and not on whether the person has worked or not. There are several other programs for disabled widows and widowers as well as disabled adult children.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.

Common legal terms explained

Pro se - This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute - Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction - Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
