SSD Attorneys Parkersburg, West Virginia

We can help you get the Social Security disability benefits you deserve.

Social Security disability is not a handout or welfare. You are entitled to it based on mandatory taxes you’ve paid.

Increased Monthly Income:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides a regular monthly payment. This may also supplement any current disability benefits you are already receiving. It also provides annual cost-of-living increases. A portion of these benefits may be tax free.

Medical Benefits:
Regardless of your age, after receiving SSDI benefits for 24 months, you are eligible for Medicare, including Part A (hospital benefits) and Part B (medical benefits).

Prescription Drug Coverage:
Once you are entitled to Medicare, you are also eligible for Medicare Part D, the prescription drug plan.

COBRA Extension:
If you receive Social Security disability benefits, the length of your COBRA benefits may also be extended an additional 11 months.

Protected Retirement Benefits:
Social Security disability entitlement “freezes” Social Security earnings records during your period of disability. Because those years will not be counted when computing future benefits, your Social Security retirement benefits will be higher.

Dependent Benefits:
If you receive Social Security disability benefits and you have a dependent under age 18, he or she may also be eligible for benefits.

Return-to-Work Incentives:
Social Security will provide you opportunities to return to work while still paying you disability benefits
