Manning, S.C. (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
New content on the website for the law firm Land, Parker & Welch, P.A., focuses on Social Security disability (SSD) benefits for veterans, children with disabilities and widows and widowers, including guidelines for eligibility and application information.
“The website is a good starting point for those who believe they or a loved one may be entitled to these types of Social Security disability benefits,” said attorney Ricci Land Welch of Land, Parker & Welch, P.A., a firm in Manning, S.C., that concentrates on SSD claims. “Applying for Social Security disability benefits can be daunting. This new content is an excellent resource for disabled persons beginning that process.”
The Web content describes the Social Security Administration’s definition of “disabled,” lists applicable income limits to receive benefits and lists and explains the steps for applying for benefits, including the necessary paperwork and medical documentation.
The Web page on SSD benefits for veterans includes information on the two programs that injured veterans may qualify for – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – depending on their income level and work history. It also describes the expedited claims process for military members who were injured while on active duty.
The section on SSD benefits for children describes the options available for children under the SSI program and lists the qualifying criteria for benefits for children under 18, as well as programs once a child turns 18, when a disabled child may be eligible for benefits under his or her parent’s work record.
The content on widow or widower SSD benefits lists the specific eligibility requirement for this type of benefit that allows an individual to apply for benefits under a deceased spouse’s work history if the spouse was the family breadwinner.
While the website content is a great place to gather information, Welch stressed the importance of contacting an experienced disability benefits lawyer to discuss and address the specific, unique facts of one’s own situation.
“Land, Parker & Welch has extensive experience with handling all kinds of Social Security disability claims,” she said. “We can guide you through the process and can help you gather the necessary paperwork and documentation so you can secure the benefits you deserve.”
