Rhode Island Social Security Disability Attorneys

If you are permanently disabled and unable to work, we will attempt to obtain permanent disability benefits for you from the Social Security Administration.
We have filed for Reconsiderations and Hearings for individuals who are no longer able to function in the work place. If you are unfortunately disabled and unable to function at work, we will file the appropriate paperwork to ensure you obtain financial help from the government. Please feel free to call us for a no charge consultation.

Please keep in mind that any fees we obtain will be paid from retroactive benefits and that you will not have to pay anything for our services unless we are successful in obtaining these benefits.

"In 1935 the Social Security Act was signed into law by President Roosevelt. Generally the act was designed as a social insurance program that paid workers over 65 a continued income after retiring."

Over the years it has grown into more of a complex government agency where in addition to paying benefits to retired workers, benefits are paid out for a variety of reasons to people that have a need due to not only retirement, but sickness, death or disability.

Collecting your check at retirement is pretty straight forward and normally would require no legal assistance. Applying for and receiving benefits for some of the other types of claims including SSI (Supplemental Security Income) & SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) normally requires legal assistance. Over half of the initial claims for SSI & SSDI are denied due in large part to the cumbersome application process.
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – Pays benefits to you and members of your family if you are insured by the program. To qualify for this you would have had to work 5 out of the last 10 years and paid Social Security taxes. To qualify, you would be unable to work due to your disability.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Pays benefits to both disabled adults and children with limited income and resources. The requirements vary depending on your situation. Unlike SSDI, you did not have to pay into the system to receive SSI benefits. This program is managed by Social Security Administration, but funded by US Treasury general funds.
  • Survivors Benefits for Widows or Widowers – Available to surviving spouses based on the earnings of the deceased spouse, with a variety of other requirements.
  • Disabled Adult Child Benefits –An adult who becomes disabled before the age of 22 may qualify for SSDI if their parent meets certain qualifications. The benefit is based on the parents' earning record.
