Yardley 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 Yardley 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.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.

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.
