You are disabled and you can no longer work. You have almost emptied your savings account, and you need financial assistance now. You are concerned about what the future holds for you if you do not get some type of help. So, you did what you thought was right and spent a considerable amount of time and energy completing an application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). What a pain that process was! The lines were so long at the Social Security Administration’s office in Baltimore that you were afraid you would never get out of there. That day was so bad; you thought you might be the first person in history to actually die of boredom while you waited. You survived, nonetheless, and your number was finally called. The person was very little help, however. Fast forward a few weeks later, and you find out your SSDI application was denied. You were informed that you should have filed an application for Social Security Insurance (SSI) instead. Now you have to start the application process all over again. This time, you should contact an experienced SSI Attorney in Baltimore. At The Law Office of Fred S. London, P.C., we can help you file your SSI application.
What Is the Difference Between SSDI and SSI Anyway?
If you are confused about the difference between SSDI and SSI, I can assure you that you are not alone. If you are blind or otherwise disabled with a physical or mental impairment that is expected to last for at least 12 months and will prevent you from working in your normal occupation, you should complete the SSDI application. However, the SSI application should be completed by disabled persons with very low incomes and few assets. The same SSI application can also be completed by low-income individuals over the age of sixty-five years old. No matter which application you need to file, you should contact us at The Law Office of Fred S. London, P.C. for assistance.
