Types of SSD Benefits Available
Coping with change is never easy. Living your life one way and having it completely altered because of a disability presents many physical, emotional, and financial challenges. You may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, either through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. Both programs are administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) as a safety net to ameliorate the difficulties caused by disability. If approved, you may receive retroactive cash benefits, ongoing monthly cash benefits, and health insurance (Medicare, Medicaid, or both). You may also be entitled to a free bus pass or access to Section 8 public housing for the disabled. As a premier Social Security Disability law firm serving Providence, South County, Warwick, and Woonsocket, Marasco & Nesselbush helps thousands of disabled individuals in Rhode Island and Massachusetts obtain the disability benefits they need and deserve.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
SSDI benefits are awarded to disabled or blind individuals based on your earnings history. Family members may also qualify for benefits.
Individuals without an employment history are typically not eligible for SSDI benefits, but may qualify for Supplementary Security Income (SSI).
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Establishing a person’s SSI payment amount begins with the Federal Benefit Rate (FBR), which is typically established annually and takes into account cost-of-living changes. The FBR in 2013 is $710 for a qualified individual and $1,066 for a qualified couple. In Rhode Island, you may also qualify for a State supplement.
The amount of SSI benefits you receive is based on your income, living arrangements, and other factors.
"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.
The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."
