An Overview of Social Security Disability Benefits in Vermont
If a disability is keeping you from working in Vermont, you may be entitled to receive monthly financial support from the federal government. There are two separate types of Social Security disability benefits that people can apply for in Vermont:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): Most people who receive Social Security disability benefits apply through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Funded through the payroll tax contributions of hardworking Vermonters, SSDI requires applicants to prove that they are “insured” under the program. This means demonstrating that you paid enough into the system through your work history based on your current age. To learn more about SSDI eligibility, contact our Vermont Social Security disability lawyers.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI): For those who may not qualify for Social Security disability benefits through SSDI, there is another option available. You can apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits in Vermont even if you have little or no formal work history. Your eligibility is based only on disability status and financial need. Call our Vermont SSI lawyers for help with an application or appeal.
Whether you are applying for SSDI in Vermont or SSI in Vermont, it is imperative that your medical records clearly demonstrate your disability status. A skilled attorney can help you gather and prepare all of the medical evidence you need to present a persuasive application for benefits.
You Can Appeal a Social Security Disability Denial in Vermont
If your Social Security disability benefits were denied in Vermont, you may be wondering what options you have available to get financial assistance. The good news is that you may still be able to access SSDI benefits or SSI benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) initially denies plenty of claims incorrectly—either because of small mistakes made by the applicant or errors made by the agency. You have the right to appeal a Social Security disability denial in Vermont.
When an SSDI claim or SSI claim is denied, the SSA is required to send a written denial letter with its stated reasoning for rejecting benefits. You should carefully review this letter as it can help you craft your appeal. The first step in the Social Security disability appeals process is called a Request for Reconsideration. During this part of the process, the SSA will take a second look at your claim. Notably, you are allowed to send in additional supporting evidence/documentation.
Strict Deadline: There are strict deadlines to appeal a Social Security disability denial in Vermont. A formal Request for Reconsideration should be submitted within 180 days of the date listed on the official denial letter. Do not wait to get started with your appeal: Call a Vermont Social Security disability lawyer as soon as possible.
