What Social Security Disability Benefits are Available in Delaware?
Are you prevented from working because of an injury, serious illness, or other disabling medical condition in Delaware? If so, you need the maximum amount of financial support. You may be entitled to Social Security disability compensation through:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) pays monthly benefits to disabled people who are “insured” by the program. To get insured, you must work enough to pay sufficient payroll taxes into the system. The SSA will review your work history and your age at the time of filing. Call our Delaware SSDI lawyers for help with your claim.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI): The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability program is based exclusively on need. There is no work history evaluation with an SSI claim. If you cannot apply for SSDI benefits because of your lack of work record, you can still get SSI benefits. Contact our Delaware SSI attorneys to get more information about your legal rights.
Regardless of whether you are pursuing SSDI disability benefits or SSI disability benefits, it is crucial that you put together a strong application that is supported by comprehensive medical documentation. Medical evidence is a key part of all Social Security disability claims in Delaware.
SSDI or SSI Claim Denied? How to File a Social Security Disability Appeal in Delaware
Were your Social Security disability benefits denied in Delaware? You have an absolute legal right to file an appeal—but you must take action before the deadline expires. One of the very first things you should do after getting an SSDI or SSI denial letter is check for all of the dates listed within it. You have 60 days from the effective date of denial to file your first-level appeal. Under federal law, an initial Social Security disability appeal is called a request for reconsideration. You can and should submit supplemental evidence to support your claim on appeal.
Check your Social Security disability denial letter to determine exactly why you were denied. There are two broad categories of denial: medical denials and technical denials. A medical denial means that the SSA is questioning your disability status. Essentially, the agency is saying you are not disabled under federal rules—at least given the information that they have seen so far. Of course, the SSA does make errors. A technical denial means that the SSA believes that you do not qualify for Social Security disability benefits based on one or more of the relevant financial or legal standards.
